His Unconquerable Soul

Nelson and HHDLWhile in prison, Nelson Mandela found strength in the words of William Ernest Henley’s poem Invictus:

“Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be, For my unconquerable soul.”

My deepest gratitude to Mr. Mandela for being such a generous teacher and soul. His passing makes me all the more grateful that in just two months, I will again be seeing my other great teacher, His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
