In The End

In the end, I became a Buddhist years ago because only three things matter. I also had the profound experiences of having a Buddhist sherpa save my life 15 years ago (nearly at the cost of his own) and of meeting His Holiness The Dalai Lama in India a year later. I actually shook His Holiness’s hand and saw the reincarnation of his extreme compassion for myself. I will never forget it. However, I truly became a Buddhist because of this: Siddhartha Gautama, known to us as “The Buddha” (which means “The Enlightened One”), got it right. He understood the true nature of life. It’s a short journey, but Siddhartha knew how to make it count. That was his gift to us.

In the end only three things matter.
