Redefining the Meaning of Success: Hillary Clinton’s Next Great Challenge?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 8, 2013

By Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief at The Huffington Post Media Group

Arianna HuffingtonWe don’t yet know what big challenge Hillary Clinton will take on next, but that she will bring her considerable talents to something big and worthwhile is not in question. Whether or not that challenge is trying to become the first woman president, she’s in a unique position to help redefine success by using her experience to address the issue of stress in the workplace.

Lack of sleep, overwork, and burnout are defining features of America’s business and political culture. They’re not just endemic in corporate suites and the corridors of power — they’re often the standard on which professional advancement is based. This has enormous consequences for our health, on our health care system, on our families and our children, and on our economy. And it makes it much harder to produce leaders capable of making good decisions. Having accomplished so much, and having done it in such a way that causes nobody to question her work ethic, her ability, her drive, her willingness to burn the candle at both ends, Hillary Clinton is in a singular position to change this. She’s proven that women can do anything, and now she can prove that women can do anything differently — and better.

Certainly, she’s well acquainted with the problem — perhaps more so than anybody on earth — having flown more than 900,000 miles to 112 different countries and, possibly even more taxing, having sat in 1,700 meetings with world leaders during her tenure as Secretary of State.

“I hope I get to sleep in,” she told ABC’s Cynthia McFadden about her upcoming plans. “It will be the first time in many years. I have no office to go to, no schedule to keep, no work to do.”

And here’s how she put it to Andrea Mitchell: “I don’t have any real plans to make any decisions. I’m looking forward to some very quiet time catching up on everything from sleep, to reading, to walking with my family. I think it’s hard to imagine for me what it will be like next week when I wake and have nowhere to go. Maybe I’ll go back to sleep for a change!” Read the rest of this entry »

My Conversation With the Dalai Lama: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 15, 2012

By Arianna Huffington

At a lunch in the crypt at St. Paul’s before the Dalai Lama received the Templeton Prize today, I was seated next to Canon Mark Oakley. “We need to move beyond relevance to resonance,” he said.

It was a call to move beyond the shallows to the depths, beyond the passing novelties of the moment to the echoes of the soul. The Canon summed up the vicious circle we too often find ourselves caught in: “We are,” he said, “spending money we don’t have on things we don’t want in order to impress people we don’t like.”

To find the peace of mind that alone can replace this aimless search that has led to an epidemic of stress, anxiety, and drugs — legal and illegal — the Dalai Lama is looking to science (specifically neuroscience) to convince a skeptical increasingly-secular society of the power of contemplation and compassion to change our lives and our world.

As he wrote in his 2005 book, The Universe in a Single Atom: The Convergence of Science and Spirituality: Read the rest of this entry »

The Dalai Lama, Arianna Huffington Interview: His Holiness Discusses Compassion, Science, Religion And Sleep

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 15, 2012

His Holiness the Dalai Lama sat down with Arianna Huffington at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London to celebrate his Templeton Prize, and discuss the importance of a productive conversation between spirituality and science.

The Dalai Lama’s role in fostering positive interactions between religion and science is one of the reasons why he was honored by the prize.

As the Templeton Foundation notes: “For decades, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama has vigorously focused on the connections between the investigative traditions of science and Buddhism as a way to better understand and advance what both disciplines might offer the world.”

Arianna Huffington also asked HH Dalai Lama about the importance of sleep; the epidemic of stress, anxiety, and drugs — legal and illegal; and compassion, which is emphasized in the practice of Buddhism.

The Templeton Prize comes with a cash award of $1.7 million dollars, which His Holiness has donated to Save The Children.

Read the transcript of the interview below:

Arianna Huffington: You have been working with neuroscientists for many years now. What do you hope to achieve through this collaboration between science and spirituality?

His Holiness the Dalai Lama: Two purpose: One purpose, up to date scientific research mainly based on matters. Now, later part of 20th century, and now beginning of this 21st century, now scientific research field now expanding, including human emotions, mind. That’s one purpose. The reason we cannot explain fully what humans are thinking about these thing just on research on brain alone. That’s one purpose. The second purpose: on the basis of scientific finding, more awareness, the how importance of our emotion for our health and healthy society and family. Now, through training of mind, how much can develop our health, our healthy society. So, and me personally, my main effort to promote these values, not through religious field, but without touching religion, simply use our common sense and common experience and then scientific finding, so to make more awareness to public. My main hope is eventually, in modern education field, introduce education about warm-heartedness, not based on religion, but based on common experience and a common sort of sense, and then scientific finding. So in that respect, you see, I’ve found a lot of useful information from scientific research work. Read the rest of this entry »
