    Just looking at some YouTube videos ... hope you're all well ...

    One to catch my eye was the Dalai Lama claiming to be a "professional laugher"

    professional laugher - YouTube

    The Dalai video is here - should be near top of those results but others look good too -



    Enjoy!

    An insightful saying by female enlightened sage Anandamayi Ma in this regard....

    "Whenever you have the chance, laugh as much as you can. By this all the rigid knots in your body will be loosened. But to laugh superficially is not enough; your whole being must be united in laughter, both inwardly and outwardly. Do you know how this is to be expressed? You literally shake with merriment from head to foot; so that it is impossible to tell which part of your body is most affected. I want you to laugh with your whole countenance, with your whole heart and with all the breath of your life." - Anandamayi Ma
