“I’m a human being, a citizen of a world in which we are all dependent on each other, a world in which we need a greater sense of concern for the welfare of others. Wherever I go I like to meet members of the public so I can share these ideas with them.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“People face difficulties in many parts of the world, but since all seven billion of us live on this one planet we should be united and stand in solidarity with each other. When this blue planet is viewed from space, there are no national boundaries to be seen.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

“If we want to see a more peaceful world, we have to learn to collaborate. Young people shouldn’t follow previous patterns of behaviour. New conditions, like our interdependent, globalised world, require new ideas. Dividing people into ‘us’ and ‘them’ is out of date.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“I am determined to help young people in any way I can, because they are the future of the world. And the first step in establishing good communications with other people is to smile. I don’t like formality. There’s no formality when we are born, nor when we die.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“We should use our unique human intelligence to solve challenges we face, and never give up or tell ourselves there’s no hope. If we have a positive goal and we’re well-motivated to seek the well-being of others, no matter how difficult it is to achieve, we can remain determined.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“Happiness derived from mere physical comfort tends to be shallow and fleeting. It fails to pacify anxiety and fear. Whereas if we have a calm mind it is effective in overcoming even physical pain, therefore we should not neglect the inner values that are a source of a calm mind.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
“The problems humanity faces today demand a positive mental attitude and a sense of compassion for others. I firmly believe we can solve the majority of our problems by developing a sense of universal responsibility—wanting to do something for others without a selfish motive.”His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
Repost @aiww: 10 years ago in 2013, I asked the @dalailama a question, ‘Do you hope to return to your native land?’ He replied, ‘I am hopeful’.
Tonight, he will launch the CIRCA 20:23 program in Piccadilly Circus with a message of hope for the world. Join a community of artists and me in giving voice to these important words:
“We must continually consider the oneness of humanity, remembering that we all want to be happy. And indeed, everyone has a right to a happy life. Along the way, we may be faced with problems, but we must not lose hope. We must keep up our determination without being impatient to achieve quick results.”
