Today, His Holiness the Dalai Lama came to Eugene, Oregon to share his message, “The Path to Peace and Happiness in a Global Society”. There were about 11,000 of us who came together to share in this momentous occasion.


Along the path many of walked to and from the event were these meditations. Simple, yet elegant.


I do not know who took the time to create and leave such a loving gift, but thank you. What a pleasure to pause, read the meditation, and enjoy my breath.


We are one community, one heart.

A lotus blossom to each of you.

Happy Earth Day

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.
