Let’s be honest, it can be hard to keep a positive attitude during these challenging times. With oil spewing into the ocean, a massive financial meltdown threatening global markets and millions of citizens out of work, you’d be hard-pressed to find many folks rocking an overly optimistic disposition. But it’s going to take a lot more than all of that to bring the Dalai Lama down!

During the Dalai Lama’s very first live morning show appearance on The Today Show last week, host Ann Curry asked His Holiness about our society’s lackluster state and how one might find contentment in such trying times.

“These problems are temporary”, said the Dalai Lama. “The human being has a gentle nature and a creative nature. A lot of these problems are man-made. So logically, we have the ability to overcome these problems.”

He also added, of course, that some problems, such as “major disasters” are in a different category altogether and are cause for serious concern. Amen!
