Tastic Tuesday! Dalai Lama dubs Michael Franti “A monk without restriction”

His Holiness the Dalai Lama with Michael Franti-His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not often interested in popular music, but was very taken with Michael Franti and Spearhead, joking about his tattoos, how such a big man can be ‘so light’ and honoring the joy and compassion he creates through music. ‘A monk without restriction’ – what a review! cc Center for Living Peace, University of California, Irvine

For years Michael Franti and Spearhead​ have given their fans hope, taught us love, compassion, and inspired us to be the change through their lyrics and music.  They lead by example, with a message to love one another no matter the flaws and that we are the change.

Watching this video of him with the Dalai Lama and hearing the Dalai Lama express what so many of us already believed in our hearts brought tears of joy to not only our eyes, but that of our children, now 11 and 8 years old.  Good things ARE happening around the world. Despite the desperate acts of violence and anger we hear in the news there IS change coming and it fills our hearts with so much joy.

It is a heavy responsibility, leading others to walk an “enlightened path,” so to speak. To not only be a good person but show others the way as well.  Children recognize this and have a deep respect for those that choose to follow it anyway.  They will strive to follow in their footsteps and that makes me very proud. Thank you Dalai Lama, Michael Franti and Spearhead, and all the other amazing people working towards a better world, for your inspiring words, music, and example.  Namaste.
