Dalai Lama Coming-To-Maui-Buzz


As the date approaches for His Holiness the Dalai Lama's visit to Maui, the excitement and the buzz on the island is growing stronger and stronger. Everyone seems to be talking about the Dalai Lama!

Despite a mistaken report in the Maui News written last year (2006)where it was printed that the Dalai Lama had visited Maui, THIS WILL BE THE VERY FIRST TIME THE DALAI LAMA WILL COME TO MAUI HAWAII! Click this link here for the accurate story.

I've just finished reading an amazing book titled, "The Story of Tibet...Conversations with the Dalai Lama" by Thomas Laird, and I highly recommend this book to everyone to get a glimpse into the real Dalai Lama's life and the history of Tibet.

This is what is written in the overleaf:"Over the course of three years, journalist Thomas Laird spent more than sixty hours with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in candid, one-on-one interviews in Dharamasala, India. They discussed His Holiness's lifelong study of Buddhism and his beliefs on history, science, and reincarnation. Through these conversations, Laird and the Dalai Lama laid the cornerstones of a popular history of Tibet, something that has not been done with a Dalai Lama since the 1600's."

This book opens a door into the larger Dalai Lama, the one who is a simple monk who wears the same red flip flops as the poorest Indian farmer.

Hi,
Found my way to you through Dragonheart's blog.

I was married in Maui so your home will always be very special to me. Such a lovely place.

Very exciting news that the Dalai Lama is visiting you. I really didn't know much about him until I read your post today.

Take care,
Connie
