His Holiness the Dalai Lama talks Peace through Compassion

Dharamshala -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama told a
standing room only crowd of some 7,000 at UC
Berkeley's Greek Theatre on Saturday that peace
and nuclear disarmament can be accomplished if
only the world's leaders could talk to one
another in a compassionate and understanding way.

"We must promote dialogue with full respect and
consideration of others' interests," said the
world's best known Buddhist as he sat
cross-legged in a maroon robe on a cushy chair
placed atop a platform covered by a rug, presumably Tibetan.

"We should have a very clear vision that the
whole world will demilitarize," he said, near the
end of his speech, which lasted close to an hour.
"There should be some restrictions on selling arms."

It was the third time His Holiness the Dalai Lama
has spoken at the campus. The last time was a decade ago.

The three words resonated loudly through the
Greek Theatre as Tibet's spiritual leader addressed thousand.

"Young, bright generation& You are the real
people, who really belong to this century," said
the Dalai Lama. "You are the source of hope."
