The Dalai Lama spoke to us of compassion and the oneness of the human family. He relayed the importance of opening your heart and mind to all people. He expressed his concerns for global warming and his curiosity for where the world would be in 30 years. It’s interesting how it’s not only what is said, but who and how they say it that communicates the deeper truth. I was truly moved by his words. We spent 5 days on a Buddhist monastery exploring the ancient traditions. It’s difficult to explain the energy of the land and the people, but I will carry it with me. It was absolutely life changing. They allowed us into a multiple day commemoration for one of Buddhism’s greatest teachers, Lama Tsongkahapa, as they celebrated his 600th year ascension into nirvana. Sharing this event with the thousands of monks in attendance was a magical experience that I will never forget. Thank you to @radiategood & @harmonicaco for putting together this once in a lifetime opportunity and the incredible group that took this journey with me. I am beyond grateful. 📸 @peterruprecht

Great way to start 2020! A long conversation with Gerard Butler and Morgan Brown at Yoga Retreat by Safarnama. We talked about Varanasi, spirituality, Hinduism, Aghor Panth and importance of connecting with your true self. Glad to introduce him to Aghor Foundation and its work. #gerardbutler #sparta #varanasi #ghats #varanasighats #incredibleindia #safarnama #yogaretreat #hollywood #300 #india
