DalaiLamasLittleBook_150w.jpgI feel like I just uncovered a major secret–how the Dalai Lama deals with stress. Here’s his wonderfully honest, simple prescription:

“Every day I experience the benefits of having peace of mind. It is very good for the body. As you might imagine, I am quite a busy many with many responsibilities, deciding on policies, traveling, and making speeches. All of this certianly is a considerable burden, and yet my blood pressure is that of a baby.

“Whatever is good for me is also good for others; I have no doubt about that. A good diet, refraining from excessive desires, and daily meditation all lead to peace of mind, and this peace of mind is physically beneficial. Despite all the difficulties we encounter in life, and I have not been spared on that account, we can all experiencethe effects of such a way of life.” –

-His Holiness the Dalai Lama, from the new book The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Inner Peace: The Essential Life and Teachings.
