Last October, the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan Buddhist monk, visited Canada. He started his tour in Ottawa to a crowd of 5,000 people and Parliament gave him an honorary Canadian citizenship. Wherever he has travelled, thousands have congregated to hear his words. What people want is a key to purposeful life. They want answers to where they are. They want to grasp something higher and bigger than themselves. They reach for a deeper connection beyond the boring routine of where they live and what they do. They cannot escape that nagging question, "Is there something more?" The question points out the void in the human spirit that only finds an answer when God is present.
