Happy saturday friends.I just read this amaze article with so many inspirational quotes from the Dalai Lama’s visit to Hawaii. I just HAD to share with you guys. Remember these words as you enjoy your weekend. <3
Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama returned to Hawaii for two talks at the UH Stan Sheriff Center.
Tenzin Gyatso, 76 years old, was born in Amdo, Tibet. At age two he was recognized as the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. (Dalai Lamas are believed to be the manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of compassion and patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to take rebirth in order to serve humanity.) Gyatso was educated in Tibet before being exiled in 1959. He continued his work in India and in 1989 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He has traveled to more than 62 countries. He last visited Hawaii, speaking in Honolulu, in 1994.
His two talks this year were held at the UH Stan Sheriff Center, where he spoke to a combined total of 18,000 people. Entertainment before he took the stage both days included dance crews, Taimane Gardner, Anuhea Jenkins, Jack Johnson, Amy Hanaiali‘i, Willie K., Henry Kapono and more.
Here are some quotes from the Dalai Lama sparking inner peace, compassion, respect, forgiveness and happiness:
“We’re the same, you and me, mentally, emotionally, physically.”
“Satisfaction brings us inner peace.”
“I believe the purpose of education is to reduce the gap between reality and appearances.”
“World peace must come through inner peace. Inner peace is essential including your healthy body. Healthy body is very much linked to healthy mind.”
“The real destroyer of inner peace is fear and distrust. Fear develops frustration, frustration develops anger, anger develops violence.”
“Respect all religions, but also respect nonbelievers.”
“Different continents, different countries, different religions, they are secondary.”
“Peace, you see, ultimately depends on motivation.”
“When promoting nonviolence, we must begin with motivation.”
“Educate the value of nonviolence through secular education.”
“The only way to deal with problems is by logic, through reason, through the basics of dialogue.”
“Try to build peace through dialogue.”
“Forgiveness and forgetfulness are very different. Forgiveness does not mean to accept the wrongdoing. The real sense is to not keep negative feelings toward that person.”
“Too much greed means unrealistic desires.”
“Everyone has the right to achieve happiness.”

The view from Diane von Furstenberg’s private royal wing at a five-star in the capital overlooks the heart of Lutyens Delhi. It’s the setting sun’s failing light filtering through the spring flowers that she sees when she stands by a large window, twirling a pair of tortoise shell spectacles distractedly in her hand.
The 64-year-old walks around the suite barefoot; possibly one of many traditions from India she has grown a fascination for. It’s the Belgium-born American designer’s second visit to the country, and she’s already a fan – of the sari, the colours, and chaos. “I spent a lifetime dedicated to making women look good. I understand women and create magic for them,” she says, looking to summarise a career spanning 40 years. It’s a career that started with a $30,000 investment as soon as she was married to Prince Egon von Furstenberg of Germany, because she “wanted to be someone of my own.”
Roses are Red, Violets are blue. Hot male models and Julianne Kaye too.

The Indian fashion industry, with its talent, craft, textile and business sense, is luring the international fashion world with a vengeance, says Pakistani designer Sahar Atif, who hopes for smooth trade relations between the two neighbours.
“There’s no denying that the Indian fashion industry and designers have managed to impact the fashion world over. They have not only impressed the world with their power, style and sensibility, but the country has a great understanding of the business dynamics of this colossal international industry,” Atif told us in an interview.
“Its effective projection of itself as ‘Incredible India’ has aided in luring international buyers to continue their relationship with the country and extend business links with people of Indian origin,” she added.
Atif, who graduated from the Pakistan Institute of Fashion Design (PIFD) in 1998, showcased her first collection on the runways in 2010.
Atif also set up the Department of Design and Textile at the Lahore Grammar School in collaboration with the Cambridge University. She currently heads the department.
Another great shout out to my boy Gary Vaynerchuk.
Mai fave part is when he says being born where there were many immigrants “ridiculous hard work….is interesting to me.”
This is for anybody who wants to build a business. Create a relationship w/ your consumers.

I just heart smart people. Especially when they financially cash in on doing something that just improved or created more savvy communication for society. Enjoy this story!
Mark Zuckerburg just announced that Facebook has agreed to buy mega-popular photo sharing service Instagram for $1 billion. Facebook’s been on a buying spree of late, and has been beefing up its own already-ubiquitous photo sharing service lately as well. But it looks like it just landed a whale.
Facebook is already one of the biggest photo sharing destinations on the web. Everyone’s on Facebook, and so are all their pictures. But Instagram isn’t just another photo sharing service; it’s basically everyone’s favorite little social network. And unlike Twitter, the last little social network that didn’t stay little, Facebook’s nipping Instagram in the bud before it takes on a life of its own.
