Dharamshala --  His Holiness the Dalai Lama on
attending the 15th Justice Sunanda Bhandare
memorial lecture on women and peace said 'women
should come forward to play a vital role in world
issues and they have that potential as they have
more sensitivity towards others' sufferings.'

Talking about peace, His Holiness the Dalai Lama
said it cannot come only from words, but it
should come from the heart. ''Bloodshed is not a
solution to any issue,'' His Holiness said in his
address at Siri Fort auditorium in New Delhi on Friday.

"Every issue has a solution and should be settled
through dialogue only," His Holiness added.

His Holiness appealed to the world community to
adopt a policy of forgiveness. His Holiness cited
examples of Japan and Germany, who have suffered
the most from the world wars, but were now
working with everyone on global issues.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama praised Indian
culture of peace and non-violence by saying,
''India has a culture and tradition of
non-violence and brotherhood and this culture is thousands of years old”.

His Holiness also talked about achieving a
harmonious society based on trust, transparency and openness.
