Dalai Lama's Bow

In the late nineties, few of us were summoned to spend five days in deep dialogue with the Dalai Lama.  Among the many admirable traits of the Dalai Lama, the one that I'm always moved by is his humility. Every morning, as he came in, he would first look at all of us, scan the width of the room, and smile big with folded hands and love-filled eyes. It took me a few days to really understand what he was doing.  He was scanning the room for the person who bowed the lowest, to be sure to bow even lower!
