World needs India’s traditions of non-violence, compassion: Dalai Lama

उन्होंने कहा, ‘‘मैं हमेशा अपने आप को भारत का बेटा कहता हूं। चीन के पत्रकार इसे लेकर मुझ पर सवाल उठाते हैं। मैं कहता हूं कि हालांकि मैं शारीरिक रूप से तिब्बती हूं लेकिन मैंने अपने जीवन के 60 साल भारत में बिताए हैं।’’

India’s ancient traditions of non-violence, kindness, love and compassion are needed in today’s world where people are fighting on the basis of religion and countries over territorial disputes, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said in New Delhi on Thursday.

India also needs to bring some kind of “revolution” in its education system by combing its 3,000-year-old ancient tradition of high moral teachings with the modern education, he said. “Those mental quality subjects like non-violence, love, kindness and compassion should be included as an academic subject instead of religious teachings,” the 84-year-old said.

अगर कोई हमारे प्राचीन भाषा को सम्मान देता है , तब इतनी नाराज़गी क्यों ?

Having joined as Assistant Professor at Banaras Hindu University’s Sanskrit Vidya Dharam Vigyan (SVDV) 11 days ago, Firoze Khan, a doctorate in Sanskrit, has gone hiding for the past few days, switching off his mobile phone too.

On Monday, a “hawan kund” was set up and around 20 SVDV students were sitting on a dharna outside the Vice- Chancellor’s residence protesting his appointment. The protests have been on since Khan’s appointment, for the only reason that he is a Muslim. No classes have been held since he joined the faculty on November 7.
