Released to mark His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday, "A Force For Good: The Dalai Lama's Vision for Our World" reveals his fresh, radically different perspective on creating a better future; a vision that can be assimilated by each and every one of us on the basis of our common humanity.

If our generation exploits everything available – trees, water, and minerals – without any thought for the coming generations, we’ll be at fault. But if we’re motivated by a genuine sense of universal responsibility our relations with the environment and our relations with our neighbours, both at home and abroad, will be more balanced.

Unfortunately today people think and they want to survive and the rich want to live even better. Natural raw materials, ores, minerals, were created millions of years, the forest grew thousands of years. The man cut down the forest for one day, with trees vanishing wildlife. Does a man so worthy and valuable that it must destroy other wildlife, oil and minerals as if the man was the creator of the world?

There are grounds for optimism when you think that in the early 20th century few people used the word compassion, but nowadays even politicians talk about it. Similarly, a century ago hardly anyone thought about ecology and the environment the way they do today. What’s more, in the early 20th century people regarded war and the use of force as the only way to resolve problems, and today that has changed.

There are those who look out into the world of appearances and create life based on that influence. Then there are those who look within to Spirit and create life with that experience. What we create with our beliefs, words, vision is our choice. It is a great challenge to be motivated by love not fear or hate and have a good life. Thank you Your Holiness for holding that light and vision for all of us! Thank you for all you've given of yourself!

It is important to teach schoolchildren that violence is a fruitless approach to solving problems. The use of violence and force inevitably entails unanticipated consequences and rarely any solution. It would be much better if children grew up accustomed to the idea that the proper way to resolve problems is through dialogue, through reaching a mutually agreeable solution.

In our modern society everything seems geared to material development, even our systems of education. As a result we no longer pay sufficient attention to our inner values, which leads to mental unrest. In order to address this imbalance we need to pay more attention to our minds.

Introduction
Three Main Commitments of His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Firstly, on the level of a human being, His Holiness’ first commitment is the promotion of human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. All human beings are the same. We all want happiness and do not want suffering. Even people who do not believe in religion recognize the importance of these human values in making their life happier. His Holiness refers to these human values as secular ethics. He remains committed to talk about the importance of these human values and shares them with everyone he meets.

Secondly, on the level of a religious practitioner, His Holiness’ second commitment is the promotion of religious harmony and understanding among the world’s major religious traditions. Despite philosophical differences, all major world religions have the same potential to create good human beings. It is therefore important for all religious traditions to respect one another and recognize the value of each other’s respective traditions. As far as one truth, one religion is concerned, this is relevant on an individual level. However, for the community at large, several truths, several religions are necessary.

Thirdly, His Holiness is a Tibetan and carries the name of the ‘Dalai Lama’. Tibetans place their trust in him. Therefore, his third commitment is to the Tibetan issue. His Holiness’ has a responsibility to act as the free spokesperson of the Tibetans in their struggle for justice. As far as this third commitment is concerned, it will cease to exist once a mutually beneficial solution is reached between the Tibetans and Chinese.

However, His Holiness will carry on with the first two commitments till his last breath.
