Marking the Dalai Lama’s 77th birthday, today is Compassion Day:
Ever since we first read Demi’s lovely picture book telling the life story of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, the boys have been quite fascinated by him. I think it was finding out that, as a child, he was really quite mischievous 😉 and liked to take things apart to see how they worked!
Anyway, Waif has written another of his poems in honour of the occasion:
A monks mind
Is always kind
A robe red
The Buddha said
