Long flights, those I really feared, but now I’m used to them. The fear now is that I never learnt to swim so if the plane crashes on water, I would immediately go deep under the sea and be enjoyed by a shark. That I really fear.

Wait, is Chicago some kind of holy city and nobody bothered to tell us?: On April 26, the Dalai Lama is planning a second trip to Chicago in a year, because let’s face it, the Windy City is a happening place for spiritual leaders. source Follow ShortFormBlog

The Dalai Lama’s stepping aside; we smell a job opening!
He’s out as a political leader. As a spiritual leader, he stays put. The Dalai Lama, one of the most iconic leaders in the world, has announced that he’ll be retiring from his work at the political head of the Tibetan exiles. “My desire to devolve authority has nothing to do with a wish to shirk responsibility. It is to benefit Tibetans in the long run,” he said in a statement. He’s pushing for a democratic vote for the next leader. May the transition be as smooth as this one. source

Dalai Lama’s nephew killed in unfortunate car accident
Yesterday, Jigme K. Norbu, the nephew of the Dalai Lama, started a 300-mile walk across Florida (with a large group of other people, by the way) to help raise awareness for the Tibetan Independence Movement. He didn’t get very far. Norbu was hit by a car less than 50 miles from his starting point, near the end of the first leg of the journey, off the coastal State Road A1A. A terrible, meaningless accident. source
