The 86-year-old Buddhist spiritual leader announced that he was predicted to have a long life.

The spiritual leader of Buddhists around the world, the Dalai Lama, who turned 86 on July 6, told doctors about his determination to live to at least 110 years, and revealed the secret of longevity. “According to my dreams, as well as my predictions, my life will last up to 110 years, some predictions say that even up to 113 years... Thanks to the sincere manifestations of respect and friendly feelings of many people, I am determined to live until at least 110 years of age”, - said Dalai Lama at an online meeting with Indian doctors and pharmacists, broadcast by the Save Tibet Foundation website.

Recall that the future Nobel Peace Prize laureate, the XIV Dalai Lama was born in 1935 in Tibet, but after the invasion of Chinese troops in this country in 1949, he fled to India, where until 2011 he was the de facto head of the Tibetan government in exile. In 2011, he announced that he was relinquishing secular power, which passed to the prime minister in exile.

In 2007, in an interview with Echo of Moscow, the XIV Dalai Lama said that after the election of a political leadership in the national elections, he was "half retired", and also expressed the opinion that in the next reincarnations, the Dalai Lama will not be a political leader. and the preservation of the institution of the Dalai Lama remains at the discretion of the Tibetan people.

Since 1959, the Dalai Lama has lived in a residence in the north Indian town of Dharamsala. In March of this year, the Dalai Lama was vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Many of the aphorisms uttered by him have spread widely in books, magazines and social networks. Here are just a few of them:

- The planet does not need a large number of "successful people". The planet desperately needs peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. She needs people to live with".

- When making a decision, ask yourself: "Will this make me happy?" Asking this question every time before making a decision, we shift our attention from what we deny ourselves to what we strive for".

- People were created to be loved, and things were created to be used.

- By looking at a person, you can guess his feelings. Anger. Love. Joy. Fear. But you will never understand his thoughts. His motives. They are hidden inside. And often people themselves do not even know why they act this way and not otherwise.

- If you strive for happiness, then determine the reasons that give rise to it, and if you want to avoid suffering, eliminate the causes and conditions that give rise to it from your own life.

- Yes, I am convinced that happiness can be achieved through education of the mind.

“Our enemies provide us with an excellent opportunity to practice patience, endurance, and compassion.

"Remember, silence is sometimes the best answer to questions".

“Forgiving doesn't mean forgetting what they did. Forgiveness means not keeping negative feelings towards them.

- Learn the rules so you know how to break them correctly.
