Long trip with no money – level 1

07-08-2023 15:00

A man learns lessons from the Dalai Lama. He wants to test these lessons. Other people and he go on a journey. They go from London to Glastonbury. The people have no money. They want to see if people will be kind to them.

People are kind to them. The man talks about his journey. One woman gives them rice. A man makes all of them tea. One person even gives them the keys to his home!

Difficult words: journey (a trip), will (this means “in the future”), kind (nice).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What other lessons did the man learn from the Dalai Lama that he was able to put into practice during his journey?
