India should share its Ancient knowledge with the world: Dalai Lama
Dharamshala, September 16, 2021: The Dalai Lama has said that India should share its Ancient knowledge with the world. In his write up released by his office today in Dharamsala Dalai Lama said, “Although our world has changed a great deal since the time of Buddha, the essence of his teaching remains as relevant today as it was 2500 years ago Buddha’s advice stated simply is to avoid harming others and to help them whenever you can in whatever way possible.”
He said that in the past Indians were our Gurus, now the time has come for India to share its Asian knowledge with the rest of the world. It will be necessary to present ancient Indian knowledge in a secular, academic way. Adopting a secular approach treating all spiritual traditions with respect has been an exemplary Indian tradition.
In this write up Dalai lama concluded by saying, “When I first came to India I reflected on the close links between this country and my home land, Tibet. As the Honourable prime minister has said India is the land of Buddha. The ultimate purpose of Buddhism is to serve and benefit humanity. I believe that whenever we consider ourselves Buddhists or not, we can all benefit from adopting the tried and tested principles of Karuna and ahimsa as the basis for creating a happier, more peaceful world.
