What Would The Dalai Lama Say To Us

I’ve just found a story on the ABC News website about the Dalai Lama and I thought his words might be relevant to worried parents everywhere.

He was then questioned by another woman, who wanted to know how to focus on happiness when she is worried for her disabled daughter’s future.

“[My teacher once said] when we face unfortunate difficulties, we should analyse that difficulty’s nature,” the Dalai Lama said.

“If there is a way to overcome it, then no need to worry. If there is no way to overcome it, then there is no need to worry.”
