People spending a lot on arms, this is completely wrong: Dalai Lama
Hospice. Stressing on establishing a peaceful world, Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama said on Friday that people are spending a lot of money on weapons, which is completely wrong.
Speaking at the inaugural session of the two-day conference SEE Learning: A Worldwide Initiative for Educating the Heart and Mind in Dharamsala, the Dalai Lama said true compassion is the best weapon to protect oneself.
The Dalai Lama Trust and the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics at Emory University are jointly organizing the conference.
People are spending a lot of money on weapons and this is completely wrong, the Dalai Lama told the gathering at the conference. We have to think about establishing a peaceful world, a compassionate world.
True compassion, he said, is the best weapon to protect oneself. Everyone talks about world peace, but world peace does not come from the sky.
The Dalai Lama said that true compassion is the basis for world peace, family peace and community peace. The inaugural session of the conference marked the 33rd anniversary of the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to the Dalai Lama.
