One of my greatest teachers in this lifetime, and I suspect many more has been the Buddha. I wish I had known him when he walked this earth or at least got a glimpse of him in a crowd.

Many years ago I woke up from a dream where I met a slightly Asian looking man dressed in robes. I kept peering at his face in the dream, saying to myself how familiar he looked. When I did wake up, I realised I had seen the Buddha in my dream. Needless to say my whole day was made:)

There are a number of Tibetan Buddhist mantras I listen to and would love to share the one which touches me the most.
