Many years ago, I was in Rome for a job.

I saw that there was an international conference on peace in the world.

When I saw the Dalai Lama, with the motorola Raz, I made two clicks, one that's what I rehearsed with photoshop.

This image is printed and lives on my wall at home, is one of the best memories I have known and seen a beautiful person with a magnetic smile.

"I am convinced that at any level, family, tribal, national, international, cultivate compassion is the key to open the door of a happy world. We do not need to become religious, we do not need ideologies. Instead, we need to develop human qualities. "

Dalai Lama Tenzin Gya

Thanks your very much to Saroj Swain for Nomination
