Dalai Lama says peace key for a better future

January 25, 2008


New Delhi, Jan 23, 2008 (ANI): Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama has
said conflicts should give way to peace to ensure a better future.

“This century should be genuine peaceful century. Now, what we have
learnt from previous century in order to solve problems? We use violent
methods. As a result millions of people get killed and suffer. And the
basis of problem is still not solved, it’s still there,” he said in an
address to the Global Foundation for Civilizational Harmony.

The Dalai Lama and former president APJ Abdul Kalam earlier inaugurated
the foundation. A book titled ‘Transcending Conflicts - Indian and
Eastern Way’ was also released.

Modern age gurus like Sri Sri Ravishankar and Ramdev, noted
intellectuals, academicians, thinkers and professionals from around the
world were present on the occasion.

The Dalai Lama had fled into exile in 1959 following a failed uprising
against Chinese rule.

He has set up his seat of power in Dharamsala, which is regarded as the
hub of Tibetan culture. (ANI)
