The world has witnessed unprecedented development in the field of technology and its associated fields. In this fast paced world, where social media occupies individuals’ space. Gone are the days where time used to stand still and we rejoiced in simplicity!
In my personal opinion, despite how far we progress in our lifestyles, we have sensory emotions that can easily be-fooled or get distracted in this overloaded information age.
In such catch 22 situations, a word of wisdom comes handy. It is double the joy especially when we can hear and watch live webcast in social media platform of this simple Buddhist monk- an apostle of peace; who is revered all around the world, not merely as manifestations of Avalokiteshvara- the Buddha of Compassion.
His Holiness the Great 14th Dalai Lama in his octogenarian status is still a man on mission to build a better and a happier world. His Holiness’ life long commitment towards bringing religious harmony on a large scales matters in true sense.
Of late, in addition to his three principal commitments, His Holiness has included ‘revival of ancient Indian knowledge’ in today’s world. His Holiness is confident that ancient Indian Knowledge based on secular ethics combine with modern education can bring integrity and harmony in contemporary society.
