message from the Dalai Lama...

Couldn't help but post this message I read in the paper today:

Dalai Lama urges teens to open hearts

The Dalai Lama urged thousands of teenagers at a world peace conference Saturday to keep open hearts, practice peace in their daily lives and accept people from all countries as neighbors and collaborators, not rivals. "There are no national boundaries. The whole globe is becoming one body." he said at the PeaceJam convention. "In these circumstances, I think war is outdated....
Destruction of your neighbor is actually destruction of yourself.
War creates environmental problems, trade gaps and humanitarian suffering that everyone must bear," he said, speaking for more than an hour at the convention, which brought together 10 Nobel Peace Prize laureates.

I saw His Holiness when he was here in Vancovuer 2 years ago and I really enjoyed his talk. It was interesting and he's now building the Dalai Lama center for Happiness here in Vancovuer because he loves that BC is so culturally diverse. I can't wait to see it when it's finished!
