Tea break with Dalai Lama

Two little dakinis, Victoria from Nigeria and Issa from Iraq, look on as His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers cookies to Noria from Afghanistan during the tea break of the dialogue with United States Institute of Peace (USIP) Youth Leaders held at his residence in Dharamsala, India on May 3, 2016.

„Conflicts arise when we dwell too much on secondary differences between us: differences of nationality, faith, whether we are rich or poor, educated or uneducated. What ‘s more helpful to remember instead is that we are all human beings and from that point of view we’re all the same.“

„Happiness depends on inner peace, which depends on warm-heartedness. There’s no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity. A calm mind and self-confidence are the basis for peaceful relations with others. Scientists have observed that constant anger and fear eat away at our immune system, whereas a calm mind strengthens it. Changing the world for the better begins with individuals creating inner peace within themselves.“

„There is a link between our physical and verbal actions and our emotions. If, instead of anger, hatred and suspicion, we are moved by loving-kindness, we will naturally have greater respect for others and our actions will be non-violent.“

„Although I am a Buddhist monk, I am sceptical that prayers alone will achieve world peace. We need instead to be enthusiastic and self-confident in taking action.“
