On Tuesday, October 3rd, Buddhist leader, the Dalai Lama, spoke at the Tsuglagkhang temple in Teckchen Choling, Dharamsala to an audience of over 6000 people. As part of a series of teachings, the Buddhist leader pointed out that they were joined by practitioners of a number of different countries and cultural organizations, all coming together to discuss the state of the world today.

He challenged his followers to reconsider their faith, explaining that many have lost sight of the true meaning behind identifying as a Buddhist. As a society, we have shifted our focus away from our spiritual journeys and the goals of finding spiritual enlightenment, instead we are distracted by materialistic goals and temptations in the physical world.
