Buddhism-Inspired Innovations

Peaceful Ideas from the Dalai Lama, Designers, Bloggers

— February 5, 2010 — Lifestyle
This cluster of Buddhism-Inspired Innovations include everything from viral peace initiatives by his Holiness the Dalai Lama, to pears shaped like the Buddha. It includes meditation retreats, lotus rings and technology that helps induce a meditative state. 

The following Dalai Lama quote sums up his beliefs quite simply: “My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” Perhaps this cluster will help that idea resonate with you too.

Implications - In today's consumption-hungry culture, many consumers have come to feel overwhelmed and distraught from reality. Businesses that provide these consumers with products and services to transport them back to simpler times will benefit in significant ways.
