Dalai Lamas are important monks of the Gelug school, the newest school of Tibetan Buddhism which is nominally headed by the Ganden Tripas. They adopt and teach a very spiritual, peaceful, and simplistic way of living.
If you’re not learning from the Dalai Lama’s way of life, then you’re missing out, and to be honest, the world as a whole is missing out. We can learn so much about our minds, mastering our emotions, and becoming better individuals in general from the teachings of the Dalai Lama.
12 Spiritual Lessons from The Dalai Lama
These are 12 spiritual lessons we can all learn from the Dalai Lama:
1. Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck
We regularly become frustrated when we’re unable to get the things we want, or when situations do not go our way. This causes us to become angry and upset, but it also causes us to dig deeper, to improve, to develop our skills further. Until we finally reach the level required to succeed.
And often, not getting what we wanted causes us to realize that we don’t truly want those things. We can end up realizing that we desire something else.
