long-term visions.

His Holiness said we must utilize and follow a realistic approach of
looking at various issues from different angles, so that one will get a
clear picture of the problem. But in order to follow the realistic path,
one must have a full knowledge of the reality, His Holiness added.

His Holiness also said human beings are bound to face unhappiness and
pain, but to challenge these problems with a calm state of mind is the
key thing.
