The Best Birthday Gift

What would the Dalai Lama like best for his birthday? This is what His Holiness said in 2013.

The best gift for me on my birthday; please keep your own mind, your own heart more compassionate, more spirit of genuine concern for others’ well being. And with that motivation if possible serve others, help others…

The wonderful images below of His Holiness throughout the last 80 years have been shared on social media.
