“The young people of this 21st century represent our planet now. They have the ability to bring about change. Even as climate change increases in intensity, they can work together in the spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood to find and share solutions. They are our real hope.”His Holiness the great 14th Dalai Lama
“If you focus narrowly on the problem as you see it, you might well lose hope, but if you look at it from a wider perspective, it’s easier to be more positive. When I decided to leave Tibet, we set out not knowing if we would live to see the following day, but I never gave up hope.”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.”
