Lions Roar : November 2018
MARTY KRASNEY BELIEVES the world has a habit of gravitating toward polarizing leaders. “Look at our world,” he says. “We have the worst divides we’ve seen in a long time. This is far from the ideal of what leaders can be and do.” Krasney is the executive director of Dalai Lama Fellows, a fellowship program that cultivates a different kind of leader—one who works across differences to solve global challenges. Since its autho- rization by the 14th Dalai Lama in 2010, the fel- lowship has grown to include more than 150 fellows from 41 nations around the world. Each fellow works on a field project that addresses either poverty, violence, gender equity, cross cultural issues, or environmental issues. The curriculum of the program targets five core values: integrity, interdepen- dence, resilience, courage, and humbition (ambition steeped in humility). These values go beyond the fellowship and the field project—they permeate daily life. “Fellows utilize what they learn when they’re at the grocery store, when they’re in a fight with their partner, or when they’re starting a new job,” says Bela Shah, the program’s director of fellows. “The central focus is inner transforma- tion, as part of leadership.” The program also includes an online curriculum that increases self-awareness, deepens compassion, and encourages action based on the principles of interde- pendence and shared humanity. Fellows learn to cultivate loving-kindness toward the self, which allows them to experi- ence compassion and resilience, and then extend that care to others. “Our inner lives are something we ignore at our own peril,” the 14th Dalai Lama writes in Beyond Religion. “Many of the greatest problems we face in today’s world are the result of such neglect.” Dalai Lama Fellows also provides emerging leaders with a supportive com- munity dedicated to social change and contemplative practice. Once per year, current and past fellows attend a Global Assembly at the University of Virginia to meet and learn from prominent Buddhist leaders, such as Thupten Jinpa and Mira- bai Bush. Many fellows collaborate to increase the impact of their project, such as two fellows who created a sustainable agriculture partnership between Ken- tucky and Kenya. “The fellows multiply the impact of each other,” Krasney says. “Many never would’ve found each other without this network.” ♦ BODHISATTVAS A New Kind of Leader Starting with inner transformation, the DALAI LAMA FELLOWS program develops leaders who focus on solutions, not differences.

In support of the project, Rinpoche suggested the phrase “Peace Through Loving Kindness” to describe his lifelong vision, and the mission for peace throughout the World for the sake of all sentient beings. These limited edition pendants strung on cord are available in ster- ling silver, $90, and in solid gold, $800. All proceeds are donated to The Tibet Center. thetibetcenter.org/shop LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2018 13
