10 Lessons From Dalai Lama That Will Change Your Life

It is not often that Oprah Winfrey is lost for words! Yet this was exactly what happened when she asked the Dalai Lama a very pertinent question, which is recounted in the book by Victor Chan entitled The Wisdom of Forgiveness.
She asked him, “Have you ever had to forgive yourself for something?” His Holiness replied, “My attitude towards mosquitoes is not very favorable, not very peaceful. Bed bugs also.”
Oprah was astounded that there was nothing else to be forgiven for in a life spanning 78 years.  Forgiveness and compassion for all living creatures are the two pillars of the Dalai Lama’s teachings. Let’s discover together how his teachings will change your life.
1. Be compassionate. “The topic of compassion is not at all religious business; it is important to know it is human business, it is a question of human survival.”
Dalai Lama Research now shows that when you are compassionate, you experience a similar feeling of pleasure as when you have sex, good food or a re…

Burning man grabs politician during live TV debate in India

(CNN) -- A man in India set himself on fire and then grabbed a politician during a live television debate this week in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, authorities said.
Police said Durgesh Kumar Singh came out of the crowd Monday as India's state-owned television station Doordarshan recorded the debate at a park in Sultanpur, about 100 miles from the city of Lucknow. He set himself ablaze with gasoline and threw himself on Kamruzzama Fauji, a local politician from the Bahujan Samaj Party. Singh died in the hospital a day later. Fauji is in critical condition with burns over 80% of his body, police said. "People were just too shocked to know what was happening," local photographer Pankaj Kumar Gupta told reporters.  The superintendent of police for Sultanpur district, Pratibha Ambedkar, was preparing for a visit by state Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav when she got a call from her office about a man threatening to set himself on fire. "By the time we…

10 Things Extraordinary People Don’t Do

We all observe astonishing things happening around us, and the people behind them. We want to know how we can follow them. Sometimes we think this success is unattainable, yet some people seem to get ahead, no matter what. They aren’t certainly cleverer, more creative or hard working than many others. Still, they accomplish bigger things than their peers.
I would say there are lessons here that have the power to radically change your life over a period of time. These extraordinary successes become extraordinary by avoiding, escaping and neglecting a few unusual things. Here are some of the things extraordinary people don’t do habitually:
1. They don’t look at short-term goalsExtraordinary people foresee not what is attainable, possible or feasible, but rather what is impossible. Achieving something extraordinary is not a short-term project. So, it’s important to look at the big picture, thinking about where you’d like to be in one, five or even ten years from now.
2. The…

Rare Titanic letter describing 'wonderful' journey is auctioned to American bidder

Written just hours before the famous ship hit an iceberg, a letter from two Titanic survivors went up for auction in England on Saturday morning. It was won in the end by an American bidder for a world record-breaking sum, according to the auction house Henry Aldridge & Son.
“This morning Eva and I went to church...and she sang out loudly, she is very bonny,” wrote Esther Hart from the library of the Titanic on the ship's signature stationary, referring to her 7-year-old daughter, Eva, who was travelling to New York with her and her husband Benjamin on the ill-fated journey.
The words are part of a letter Esther wrote to her mother in England on the afternoon of April 14, 1912, shortly before the Titanic famously met disaster. The ship hit an iceberg just before midnight and sank into the Atlantic Ocean in the wee hours of the following day, killing more than 1,500 people.

The letter was written by Titanic survivor Esther Hart, who was on board with her 7-year-ol…
