Dalai Lama in Atlanta

Fascinating relationship between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Emory University in Atlanta, which is historically a Methodist school, and where HH serves as Presidential Distinguished Scholar

.

The Dalai Lama has been in Atlanta for several days now, and a variety of lectures on happiness and attendant subjects have ensued around his visit. There are videos and information. aplenty on this website. I find the Tibet-Science Initiative particularly interesting. In it, monks and nuns are being taught western science.

Also check out the Compassion Meditation Study.

All of this has particular relevance as I have been covered in a black cloud since my return home, a reminder of the punishing effects of depression, which creeps in regardless how vigilant one is to combat it.

    Welcome home. Your work regarding Bhutan is having effects you may never know. And I’ve had that same black cloud pass through my head. Be patient, get into the sun. It will pass.

    Fantastic effort with the monks and the science Lisa – thanks!! Sorry to hear about your depression: just know it might also have to do with the change in climate, microclimate (other bacteria and such) and quite strongly simply jet lag. Give yourself some time and be very gentle with your body for a bit – good luck!
