I just came across the Dalai Lama’s Twitter page.
Maybe it’s common knowledge that he has one, but I hadn’t seen it.
4 minutes ago, we got this: “Genuine love should first be directed at oneself – if we do not love ourselves, how can we love others?”
On Monday: “We need a genuine sense of responsibility and a sincere concern for the welfare of others.”
Saturday: “Because our own human existence is so dependent on the help of others our need for love lies at the very foundation of our existence.”
Friday: “An affectionate disposition not only makes the mind more peaceful and calm, but it affects our body in a positive way too.”
I assume he writes them himself.
Does he dictate them to someone? Or tap them out on his own smartphone?
How many followers does he have? 1,278,372 at the moment. Not quite Ashton Kutcher numbers (6 million-plus), but not bad.
How many Tweeters does the Dalai Lama follow? Zero.
