If we start now and make the effort, we can make the world a more peaceful place. We have to try. The human population is growing and climate change is having its effect. Violence breaks out because our destructive emotions run out of control. Human rights violations, for example, are related to anger and a lack of respect. We can counter these tendencies by cultivating warm-heartedness and concern for others.

Knowledge of mind and emotions should be taught in schools. On the basis of that understanding we can become healthy, happy individuals, families, communities and societies. But if the mind is not disciplined, mere knowledge will not be of much help. We need to use our intelligence to extend our basic compassionate nature, which gives rise to trust, the very basis of friendship—as human beings that’s we all need.

Small children are very pure and open. They have no prejudices or preconceptions. They aren’t bothered by the secondary differences of color, faith, nationality, wealth or education that seem to pre-occupy adults. We would be better to be like them and one remedy is to remember that we are all the same as human beings.

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.
