Mother Theresa

Today at many places in the world the 100rds birthday of Mother Theresa has been celebrated.

Most people know this remarkable woman did a lot of good for those in need. She worked with the poorest of the poorest and never denied someone support.

She saw in every person an image of God and treated that person accordingly.

Samdhong Rinpoche ( on July 29, 2001 elected prime minister of the Tibetan government in exile) said about  the importance of her for Tibetan Buddhism:
"For us, the Mother is the incarnation of Maha Karuna (immeasurable compassion).
For her, no one was unreachable.
The Dalai Lama had the deepest admiration and respect for her."

She's a great example to everyone of us, regardless of religion or philosophy.
