Dalai Lama Stresses Religious Harmony During Medicinal Buddha Empowerment, Part T
This is the final part of Dalai Lama’s recent talk given to a several thousand followers during the Medicinal Buddha Empowerment in Dharamsala, North India. His Holiness talks about his second commitment: promoting religious harmony around the world. He says that all major religious traditions teach the same message such as love, compassion, tolerance, contentment, self-discipline, and so forth. Unlike other religious traditions, according to Buddhist philosophical point of view, everything is interconnected or interrelated; there is no absolute or independent phenomena which is known as dependent origination. This concept is very much relevant in today’s world. Therefore, Tibetans should be proud of their vast and profound knowledge of Buddhist tradition which is written in Tibetan language, and should study them, says the Dalai Lama.
