WISDOM OF THE
At the end of the talk someone from
asked the Dalai Lama, "Why didn't you
fight back against
the Chinese?" The Dalai Lama looked
down, swung his feet
just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, "Well, war is obsolete,
you know " Then, after a few moments,
his face grave,
he said, "Of course the mind can rationalize
back...but the heart, the heart would never understand.
Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the
and the war would be inside you."
Prayer of Dalai Lama In
TIBET Day "
as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain
Until then, may I too abide
To dispel the misery of the world "
Profound Words of The Dalai Lama
My message is
the practice of compassion,
love and kindness. Compassion can be put
into practice if one recognizes the fact that
every human being is a member of
humanity and the human family
regardless of differences in religion,
culture, color and creed.
there is no difference.
Each of us in
our own way can try
to spread compassion into people’s hearts.
Western civilizations these days place great
importance on filling the human “brain” with knowledge,
but no one seems to care about filling the human “heart”
with compassion. This is what the real role of religion is.
world is becoming increasingly
materialistic, and mankind is reaching toward the very
of external progress,
driven by an insatiable desire for power
and vast possessions.
Yet by this vain striving for perfection
in a world where everything is relative,
they wander even
further away from inward peace and happiness of the mind.
This we can
all bear witness to, living as we do plagued
by unremitting anxiety ...
It becomes more and
more imperative that the life of the
spirit be avowed
as the only firm basis upon which
to establish happiness and peace.
This is my
simple religion. There is no need for temples;
no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain,
our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
