The Dalai Lama spoke at the Global Spa and Wellness Summit in Gurgaon, near Delhi, India on October 7, 2013. He flew in from Dharamsala to Delhi and was received at the airport by an old friend, Analjit Singh, who is also the founder and chairman of Max Healthcare.
During the summit, Dalai Lama expressed his gratitude towards Analjit Singh for the invitation, and talked about the significance of having a compassionate attitude in having a happy and healthy life.
“Everyone wants to live a happy life, but we tend to look for happiness and satisfaction in material things. However, several scientists I have spoken to now acknowledge that having a happy mind is crucial to physical health. This is why I propose that in addition to physical hygiene we also need to cultivate a sense of emotional hygiene,” said the Dalai Lama.
The Dalai Lama is scheduled to give a public talk in Atlanta, Georgia, the United States tomorrow, October 8, 2013. He will embark on a long journey to the United States, and various cities in Mexico starting October 8 to October 20, 2013.
