The Dalai Lama unveiled the foundation plaque of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (Nimhans) Integrated Centre for Yoga in Bangalore on yesterday.
In his address after the inauguration he asked Indians to use the knowledge that India has. He stated that knowledge that came from Nalanda is being used in other parts of the world. He expressed, “However, you Indians are busy copying the west and leading a materialistic life. Ancient Indians were our Gurus (teachers).”
Touching upon the raging intolerance debate, he expressed that Indians are largely tolerant people. He said, “Ninety nine per cent of Indians still are religiously tolerant and one per cent it is possible (to have intolerant people). I believe that. Some politicians may express different things, but that is their individual expression.”  He added, “Some people in the media, too, create small things into ….sensationalism.”
He acknowledged the power of prayer for individuals but stated that he was not sure how much good it was doing for society at large. “If god were to visit the earth and we asked him to give us peace, he would say that he created a peaceful and compassionate world. But the freewill that he gave was misused,” he stated. He also emphasised on the need for education. “The need of the hour is education, not prayer!” said he. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
He was of the view that it is important to understand reality and be grounded to be truly happy. “Everyone wants to lead a happy life. No one creates problems deliberately, but out of ignorance and short-sightedness. It is essential to understand the reality and live in reality. Reality is always complex.”
He also urged youngsters to question before accepting. “First, one must understand by hearing or reading. The next step is to analyse knowledge and contemplate it. After this, one vlog must get experience,” he said.
Hollywood actor Richard Gere, an ardent follower of Dalai Lama, too was present on the occasion. Addressing the audiences, he stated, “It is ironic that I am talking to Indians about meditation. Meditation is a new concept for us. I come from a country that is just born.”
