By Mohammed Abbas

LONDON: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said on Wednesday resuming talks with China on his homeland’s future was futile unless it adopted a “realistic” stance, adding it was useless trying to convince Beijing he was not seeking full independence.

In comments likely to enrage a Chinese leadership already angry over his trip to Britain, the Dalai Lama also said a shift towards democracy and better human rights in China was inevitable and the Chinese people “really want change”.

The 76-year-old monk was speaking in Britain, which he is touring to spread a message of non-violence and compassion, touching upon issues including European economic woes, which he said were partly caused by “greed and ignorance” (+) »

article : Make Buddha’s Teachings Relevant to Daily Life, says His Holiness #tibet #buddhism #hhdl #dalailama

« Manchester, 18th June 12

“Many of us recite the verses of taking refuge without really appreciating who or what the Buddha is. If you study, you can make the Buddha’s teachings relevant to your day to day life,” His Holiness the Dalai Lama said in Manchester.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was visited this morning by his old friend Laurence Freeman, a Benedictine monk, who has been active in promoting Christian meditation. His Holiness previously participated in the Way of Peace with him, and they have meditated together. The two of them share a strong commitment to encouraging and engaging in inter-religious dialogue.
