We are at the dawn of an age in which extreme political concepts and dogmas may cease to dominate human affairs. We must use this historic opportunity to replace them with universal human and spiritual values. And ensure that these values become the fiber of the global family which is emerging. -Dalai Lama

Yama 8
Yama came with her parents and three sisters on a six-week pilgrimage to the Jokhang Temple in Lhasa from the province of Kham. "Yama helped carry our ten-month-old daughter much of the way," her mother said. "We noticed very early that she was born with the true spirit of wanting to help others."
