Everything we believed and knew was shaken to its core: love, compassion, forgiveness, and the laws of karma, all were on the brink of falling apart. His Holiness Dalai Lama never give up his vow to guide us. He reminds us that life is full of opportunity to practice Dharma in the fullest engagement.
