What you can give the Dalai Lama for his 80th birthday

Dalai LamaGood news: We officially have the perfect present for you to get the Dalai Lama for his 80th birthday! Ready for it? It’s compassion.

The Friends of the Dalai Lama released a music video this week—that’s already racked up an incredible number of views worldwide.

In it wellness leaders and celebs like Arianna Huffington, Russell Simmons, and Gabby Bernstein invite viewers to act with compassion in their everyday lives in celebration of his 80th year—and to tag their moments of “compassion in action” on social media with the hashtag #WithCompassion.

The submissions will then be curated into a montage and presented to the Dalai Lama at his official birthday party, the Global Compassion Summit, at Anaheim’s Honda Center on Sunday, July 5.

So now you can document a thoughtful deed and skip the Hallmark aisle for the right bday message to his Holiness. —Jamie McKillop


Give the Dalai Lama, who has dedicated his life to peace and kindness, the ultimate 80th birthday present: share how you will make the world a more compassionate place using #WithCompassion.
