Si Dieu n’ existait pas, il faudrait l’inventer” (“If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him”) – Voltaire
Human conflicts cannot be salvaged merely through science. Thus, it is in the creation of God (concept) we reside/ find solace. In our most arduous times, we start seeking help from all sources, we look for glimmering rays of hope and Tibetans, we found ourselves one in “His Holiness”. From our earliest days of hardships in exile, he held us in his thoughts and enveloped us in his compassion. I am a strong atheist but if there is anything divine in this world, he is closest to it “the divine”. There is something very special about him, something very endearing, very warm that makes us want to protect at all cost. Your Holiness we not only celebrate your birthday, we also keep in our thoughts your values and motherly advice. We love, adore, cherish, respect and revere you with our lives. Thank you, your Holiness.
