Dalai Lamas Advice on Change

Dalai Lamas Advice on Change

Many of us truly want to change our lives and ourselves, but it can be next to impossible to know how to start. Here is some of the most direct and helpful advice for manifesting true change that we have come across, from His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Read the Dalai Lamas three steps to true change, here:

1. Listen to experienced teachers.

2. Contemplate and process the teachings until you reach the point of profound conviction.

3. Meditate until the mind becomes completely absorbed by the subject matter.

Note that The Dalai Lama believes it is important to implement these three stages of practice consecutively.

What people forget is that until 1959, Tibet was a Slave society run by fundamentalist Buddhists. Every family had to give their temple one of their sons. A theocratic society with more than a hundred religious holidays a year, the people (of whom most were living in abject medieval like poverty conditions) were ruled by myth and superstition. The majority of the people were inherited debt slaves, still paying off their ancestors debts to the temples who owned most of the land. 
Slavery was outlawed in Tibet when? 1959. First public schools? 1960. First university? 1960. First hospital 1960. All after the Dalai Lama and the royal and religious elite had left. 
It is evident that I am not a royalist neither do I respect religious leaders, the pope included, so when I see a man revered as some kind of god-king I tend to be cynical, I try my best not to be brainwashed by ancient dogma and modern fads. So at the risk of being unfashionable...Am I only one that thinks the Dalai Lama is a little bit fishy?
