Lady GaGa & Dalai Lama Promote Mindfulness
In an unusual pairing, pop star Lady GaGa and the Dalai Lama gave a unique perspective on how nurturing mindfulness is an initial step toward world peace.
“Change in humanity must start from individuals,” said Dalai Lama and Lady GaGa added, “We are unified in our humanity, and the only thing that we all know and we all appreciate in one another is kindness, and this has to come before all things.”
Mindfulness as a way to nurture kindness and build inner peace is a path they both recommend.
