New Delhi, India, 23 December 2013 - When His Holiness the Dalai Lama entered the hall to undertake the preparatory rituals for the Akshobhya empowerment he was going to give this morning, several hundred Russian students were waiting for him. Sitting before the mandala enclosure and an array of offerings he spent about an hour fulfilling the necessary preparatory rituals. By the time he finished, the hall was nearly full. He told his audience that he would like to continue reading Chapter 6 of the ‘Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life’ until the end of the current section, which meant verse 10, which he often cites for the realistic and practical advice it provides.
Why be unhappy about something
If it can be remedied?
And what is the use of being unhappy about something
If it cannot be remedied?
