Dalai Lama

Lecture. HH Main Temple, Mcleod Ganj, Northern India. April 16th, 2018. 

 

“Remind yourself daily of all our brothers and sisters.

All seven billion of your family.

Basic human nature, like children show, is compassion.

Constant anger, or hatred, is eating our human system.

Constantly purify yourself and come back to your compassion.”

 

“It is extremely important that we introduce compassion and interdependence into our education.”

 

“In the education of our current system, children learn to find the differences in each other.

Today we are in a period of a crisis of our emotions.

India’s understanding of respecting all religions, including non-believers, is one that can help internationally: secular beliefs. “

“Focus on interdependence and one-ness. Us vs. Them mentality is causing our problems. Remove the barriers.

Focusing on the self too much causes loneliness. Just remember we are all human beings otherwise the differences will cause us anxiety.”

 

“Inner peace needs self confidence.

Self confidence needs honesty. Self confidence brings will power.”

 

“Peace does not come from prayer.

Humans create violence, it is up to us to create peace.

We must not think of making change from force. 

Dialogue is what is needed.

Force is from the feudal system. War and force are from this old system.

What use is anger? It will only increase our problems.”

 

“Take care of oneself. Be wise-selfish. “
