Description

In recent times His Holiness the Dalai Lama has emerged as one of the foremost exponents of ahimsa, i.e, non-violence, after Mahatma Gandhi, whom he regards his mentor. He combines in himself a mixture of dignity and restraint while dealing with the traumatic situation brought about by Chinese atrocities followed by the exodus from Tibet. His equanimity of mind and moderation from an early age sustain him in maintaining his balance and joviality. His forbearance and patience are phenomenal. He has been consistently pursuing the twin objects of world peace and human happiness with transparent sincerity and dedication.

Be it Tiananmen Square, Mongolia, Vietnam or South Africa, he feels one with those afflicted by strife and violence, for his concern knows no distinctions of race, religion or political affiliations. Speaking as a simple Buddhist monk he pleads for tolerance, wisdom and understanding to establish a just and peaceful world order.

In his speeches and interviews he addresses his audiences with remarkable simplicity and directness, conveying in simple words his deep thoughts on wide-ranging subjects and issues of global concern. He carries his burdens lightly on his robust shoulders, and permeates the atmosphere wherever he goes with his delightful presence.

It is this courage, combined with compassion and love, which characterizes the role of the Dalai Lama in the Preservation of the Tibetan religion, culture and tradition. But this is only a part of his overall scheme of things, for his concern includes the happiness and welfare of all humanity, aptly described by him as universal responsibility, embracing all mankind as well as nature.

REVIEWS

As a Buddhist monk, my concern extends to all members of the human family and, indeed, to all sentient beings who suffer. I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction. Yet true happiness comes from a sense of inner peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved through the cultivation of altruism, of love and compassion and elimination of ignorance, selfishness and greed.
-The Dalai Lama

The hope of all men, in the last analysis, is simply for peace of mind. My hope rests in the courage of Tibetans and the love of truth and justice that is still in the heart of the human race.
-The Dalai Lama
