In collaboration with Ramanujan College of Delhi University, Tibet House, the Cultural Center of the Dalai Lama organized a panel discussion on "The Role of Universal Ethics in Higher Education Teaching" at India Habitat Center in New Delhi on April 22, 2017.
The chief guest of the panel discussion, Shri Naresh Sahai Mathur, Senior Advocate of Supreme Court of India stressed on the cultivation of universal ethics according to the three stages shown by Tibet's spiritual leader: restraint, virtue and empathy, or compassion.
The Director of Tibet House, Geshe Dorji Damdul made clear the change of term "Secular Ethics" to "Universal Ethics". "Secular in western connotation is something against the religion and it creates problem in propagating the concept which is relevant in today's world. So it is now changed to universal ethics," says Geshe Damdul.
Around 15 panelists and 100 students and academicians from colleges under the Delhi University, Shiv Nadar University, and Jawaharlal Nehru University participated in the one-day panel discussion.
