Dharamshala, Jul 12: The Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama stressed upon youths to be compassionate and human.
The Dalai Lama stated this when he met the students from Kingswood School in Bath, United Kingdom and professionals from India at his palace at McLeodganj and touched on a wide variety of meaningful topics that concern the well-being of humanity.
The Dalai Lama asserted that he does not like the emphasis on formality that human has created which only creates barriers as he mentioned that life and death do not require formality as it comes and goes unannounced.
He accentuated that all human beings based on the very nature of life and death are the same be it physically, mentally and emotionally besides the scientists have claimed that basic human nature is more compassionate.
Moreover, humans being social are social animals cannot survive independently as all are dependent on each other. “As soon as we are born we receive the maximum mothers love and care,” the Dalai Lama said.
The spiritual leader further noted that if we humans keep the sense of community, taking care of each other naturally all the sentient beings become much happier. “A child is not bothered about religious faith, the nationality of other children. They represent the purest form of the oneness of humanity,” the Dalai Lama said. However, he mentioned that children gradually join the education system and there they learn to put emphasis on different religious faith, nationality, caste, creed, and colour. (UNI)
