<b>"I always consider myself as a simple Buddhist monk. I feel that is the real me. I feel that the Dalai Lama as a temporal ruler is a man-made institution. As long as the people accept the Dalai Lama, they will accept me. But being a monk is something which belongs to me. No one can change that."</b> --His Holiness the Dalai Lama <br><br> In October 2012, the Dalai Lama visited the Kurukulla Center for Buddhist Studies in Medford, Massachusetts and addressed approximately 1,800 residents from this diverse New England community. <br> <br> To commemorate the one-year anniversary of his Holiness' visit, Comcast NBCUniversal presents the enhanced edition of <i>His Holiness The Dalai Lama: A Message of Spiritual Wisdom</i> to inform readers about the impact he has around the world. <br><br> The Dalai Lama is a well-known figure, with millions of followers through social media channels and within all parts of the globe. Yet his history, background, and the scope of his accomplishments often go unnoticed. <br><br> <i>His Holiness The Dalai Lama: A Message of Spiritual Wisdom</i> explains how the religious leader was first chosen in 1937 and provides an overview of his political and cultural history. It also celebrates the way he brings communities together through a message of peace and nonviolence. <br><br> Included are text and video excerpts from the Dalai Lama’s address to attendees of the Kurukulla Center, as well as discussion questions, a glossary of terms, and select resources. <br><br> In addition, the book also features a video introduction by Ann Curry of NBC News, as well as video of her exclusive interview with the Dalai Lama on <i>Today</i>.
