Day 1 – December 25, 2013. Second part.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Here is a huge assembly of monastic so you may not get so much money. Sometime people come here with the motivation to make money: that’s wrong! And sometimes people come here to listen to teaching and then to go out in order to do business and make money: that’s also is wrong. Or there is maybe somebody who has come here to exploit the crowd to make money: this is not what we are talking about, the dharma. Continua »

Day 1 – December 25, 2013. Third part.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

When I meet westerners I speak frankly with them. So, wherever I am, like in this kind of gathering with Tibetan community, I speak honestly, I speak as a human being and not as the Dalai Lama, nor as a Buddhist. I tell people that, if I think that I’m the Dalai Lama, I’m a tibetan, or a Buddhist, actually this distance me from the others. Continua »

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

And so, if people ask to you what Buddhism is about, you should be able to answer in this way: the main points of Buddhism are nonviolence, ethical conduct and the philosophical view of dependent origination. You that come from Tibet also, keep in mind these two things. Nonviolence it doesn’t mean that you looks smiling when you keep the ill actions in yourself, but it means that, inside yourself, you should be totally compassionate. Continua »
