World Peace, Who is Responsible? Public Talk
His Holiness the Dalai Lama advocates for individual and universal responsibility – this is his message, the very basis of his teachings and those of Shakyamuni Buddha. Over the course of his 2009 visit to Australia, His Holiness will present, demonstrate and discuss the very nature of being and how responsibility for our future lies with each and every one of us.
The Our Future, Who is Responsible? 2009 visit will include two days of Buddhist Teachings base on the famous Indian Buddhist master Nagarjuna’s Commentary on Bodhicitta (is the wish to attain complete enlightenment – that is, Buddhahood – in order to be of benefit to all sentient beings) and three Public Talks in Sydney, Hobart & Melbourne.
Developing a kind heart and awakening the mind is not just a sentimental or religious goal. It is for everyone, irrespective of race, religion or political affiliation. It is for anybody who considers themselves a member of the human family.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama feels that different religious traditions have a great responsibility to provide peace of mind and a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood among humanity.
Awakening the Mind – Nagarjuna’s Commentary on Bodhicitta, touches on the two aspects of the awakening mind – the twin qualities of wisdom and compassion, which are necessary for anyone who aspires to be a better person and implement change in their lives.
The instructions for cultivating them within each of us are explained in this Teaching. Recognised as one of the most accomplished Buddhist Masters, His Holiness will deliver these teachings based on his own profound and authentic experience of compassion, loving kindness and inner peace.
As Archbishop Desmond Tutu recently has stated, “His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not simply a holy man. He is recognized throughout the world as one of our few true moral authorities. He is a teacher who has shown us all how to live our lives with compassion, non violence and love.”
Buddhists and non Buddhists alike, come away profoundly moved and motivated to take responsibility and create positive changes in their lives.
In a world that confronts us each and every day with difficult and often upsetting situations, the wisdom of the Dalai Lama challenges us and invites us to seek alternatives which not only achieve our own well being but which also contribute to the good of all.
His Holiness advocates for individual and universal responsibility. This is his message, the very basis of his teachings and those of the Buddha. During the Sydney public talk His Holiness will present, demonstrate and discuss our 2009 visit theme, how responsibility for our future lies with each of us.
Our Future, Who is Responsible? is about helping people to become aware of their individual responsibility as global citizens for their own actions, the world in which they live and for all other living beings they share it with.
The Dalai Lama makes no claim to be anything other then a ‘simple Buddhist monk’ but his practical advice for living and working in these current times, is highly sought after and universal.
