Founders Blog - The Dalai Lama and Pharrell walk into a bar...
Today one of our world’s greatest spiritual leaders led the prayer on the Senate floor in Washington, DC.
This is what His Holiness, the Dalai Lama said:
Hearing these words, along with hearing Pharrell’s wonderful song, Happy, I am inspired to look closely at how we teach our kids at Art Works. We are always working to bring them joyful and creative experiences, while also supporting their understanding of the world we live in and some of the challenges we human beings face in our efforts to make it better for everyone.
While I believe we have always had the right intentions in our hearts, I am inspired today to more consciously work to fill our students with the above message. That if we speak and act with a pure mind, happiness will follow us. And that it is through sharing our happiness that we are able to help dispel the misery of the world. This is true social justice, of the joyous variety.
So, clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth…
