Zitate zum Thema 14. Dalai Lama

Zitate von 14. Dalai Lama

  • Anhand der neuen Wirklichkeit gibt es das [tief eingegrabene] Konzept von WIR und [gegen] DIE ANDEREN tatsächlich nicht mehr. [...] Behandle deshalb andere als Teil deiner selbst. Die ganze Welt sollte Teil des WIR sein. Heutzutage benötigen wir das Konzept der Einheit der Menschheit [...] und einen Sinn für weltumspannende Verantwortlichkeit. [...] Ich fühle, dass die Wirklichkeit nicht mehr getrennt ist. Video Podiumsdialog mit Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989 und Welt Elder Mary Robinson, zum Thema Wisdom and Compassion for Challenging Times ['Weisheit und Mitgefühl in schwierigen Zeiten'], Teil 6, präsentiert von The Tibet Fund, moderiert von Pico Iyer, Town Hall, New York City, New York, 3. Mai 2009, YouTube Film, Minuten 2:38, 3:40, 4:37, insgesamt 8:37 Minutes Dauer, eingestellt 19. Mai 2009

Vergleichende Stolz-Kultur

  • Auf der sekundären Ebene gibt es eine Menge von Spaltungen und Barrieren. Auf der sekundären Ebene gibt es unterschiedliche Nationalitäten, unterschiedliche Rassen, unterschiedliche Hautfarben, unterschiedliche Religionen. Innerhalb der Gemeinschaften gibt es die Reicheren und die Ärmeren, die Gebildeteren und die Ungebildeteren, die aufgrund ihrer hoch angesehenen Berufe Hochgeschätzteren und die aufgrund ihrer Arbeit Geringgeschätzteren.
    Ich glaube, dass viele der menschengemachten Probleme daher rühren, dass die sekundäre Ebene der Unterschiede zu stark gewichtet wird. Wir vergessen dabei die grundlegende Einheit der Menschen.

(Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989, Friedensgipfel, präsentiert von CTV.ca, Filmsequenz 2 von 4, 2/3 der Länge, Minute 50:13-55:00, Sonntag, 27.

Demut

  • Es ist wichtig zu unterscheiden zwischen echter Demut, die eine Form von Bescheidenheit ist, und mangelndem Vertrauen. Sie sind keineswegs identisch, obwohl viele sie verwechseln. Dies mag ansatzweise erklären, weshalb man heutzutage vor allem im Geschäfts- und Berufsleben Demut oft als Schwäche statt als Ausdruck innerer Stärke betrachtet. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989, Facebook Kommentar, 29.

Frieden

  • Wir können niemals Frieden in der Welt finden, wenn wir die innere Welt vernachlässigen und mit uns selbst nicht Frieden schließen. Weltfrieden muss aus innerem Frieden entstehen […]. Unser Schlachtfeld liegt nicht außerhalb, sondern innerhalb unserer selbst. Dalai Lama XIV.

Ende der Religionen

  • Alle großen Weltreligionen mit der Betonung auf Liebe Mitgefühl, Geduld, Toleranz und Vergebung können innere Werte fördern. Die Realität unserer heutigen Welt ist jedoch, dass es nicht mehr zeitgemäß ist, Ethik auf Religionen zu gründen. Daher bin ich zunehmend überzeugt, dass die Zeit reif ist, einen Ansatz zu finden, über Spiritualität und Ethik gänzlich jenseits von Religion nachzudenken. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989, Facebook Kommentar, 10.

Aufruf des Dalai Lama an die Frauen

  • Ich habe einen Glauben, weswegen mich manche womöglich als Feministen bezeichnen werden.
    Vor Millionen von Jahren existierte kein Herrschaftsgedanke in der menschlichen Gesellschaft.
    Alle waren gleich.
    Die Leute arbeiteten miteinander und was immer sie hatten, teilten sie unter sich.
    Schließlich wuchs die Bevölkerung. Einige bösartige Menschen kamen auf die Idee, die Herrschaft einzuführen.
    Die wesentliche Eigenschaft der Herrschaft ist der materielle Status.
    Ich glaube, die männliche Vorherherrschaft [= Stolzkultur] entstand damals.
    Schließlich nahm die Bildung eine wichtige Stellung ein, was das Gleichgewicht der Geschlechter
    bedeutend verbesserte.
    1. Geld oder Reichtum genügte nicht, um inneren Frieden zu bringen.
    2. Das [naturwissenschaftlich orientierte] Bildungswesen genügte nicht, um inneren Frieden zu bringen.
    3. Die Technologie genügte auch nicht, um inneren Frieden zu bringen.
    4. Im 21. Jahrhundert müssen wir die Menschenrechte, Ethik, Mitgefühl und Zuneigung nachhaltiger fördern.

 

  • Frauen sind einfühlsamer angesichts der Schmerzen oder des Leidens anderer. […]
    Daher bitte ich die [westlichen] Frauen, sich stärker [in Führungsrollen] zu engagieren.

Quotes by Dalai Lama

Personal avowals

  • My own mother, for instance, was very kind. So today, the first seed of my compassion came from my mother, not from Buddhism. After studying Buddhism, it merely increased. If I didn’t have that kind of a kind mother or if my parents had abused me, then today maybe it would be difficult for me to practice compassion. Therefore, the seed of compassion is a biological factor. We need it for survival. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989, Religious Harmony, Compassion, and Islam, transcribed and lightly edited by Alexander Berzin, Milan, Italy, 9. December 2007

 

  • Question: Do you ever feel angry or outraged?
    Answer: Oh, yes, of course. I'm a human being. Generally speaking, if a human being never shows anger, then I think something's wrong. He's not right in the brain. [Laughs.] H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989, 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama, magazine TIME, 14. June 2010

Women's leadership

  • I have a belief for which some people may call me a feminist. Millions of years ago there was no idea of leadership in the human society. Everybody was equal. People worked together and whatever they had they shared with each other. Eventually the population increased. Some mischievous people then started with the concept of leadership.
    The main quality of leadership is the physical status. I believe, the male dominance [= pride culture] started from that. Then eventually education took an important role. That created more equality between men and women. H.H. Dalai Lama, Peace Summit, clip 2 of 4 last section, minute 14:53-17:59, Vancouver, Sunday 27. September 2009

Recommendations

  • We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. You always have the choice. H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935)

The concept of WE and THEM is no longer valid – according to the new reality. Therefore treat others as a part of yourself. The entire world should be part of WE. Here we need the concept of oneness of humanity and we need a sense of global responsibility. The reality is no longer separate, this I feel. Video panel dialogue with Dalai Lama and Global Elder Mary Robinson, Wisdom and Compassion for Challenging Times, part 6, presented by The Tibet Fund, The Town Hall, New York City, New York, 3. May 2009, YouTube film, minute 2:38, 8:37 minutes duration, posted 19. May 2009

In 2002, a poll by the German magazine Geo Wissen placed the Dalai Lama on the top of the list
of personalities admired most by Germans.

Love

  • Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive. Source unknown, date unknown

  • Today the human soul asks the question: What can I do to preserve the beauty and the wonder of our world and to eliminate the anger and hatred? Please seek to answer to that question today, with all the magnificence that is You. Others are waiting for you now. They are looking to you for guidance, for help, for courage, for strength, for understanding, and for assurance at this hour. Most of all, they are looking to you for love.

Man is the most surprising asset in life.

  • Question: What does surprise you the most about humanity?
    Answer: Man. […] Because
► he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
► Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
► And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
► the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
►he lives as if he is never going to die,
► and then dies having never really lived.

Future

  • I think that we can say, that, because of the lessons we have begun to learn, the next century will be friendlier, more harmonious, and less harmful. Compassion, the seed of peace, will be able to flourish. I am very hopeful. At the same time, I believe that every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not enough; we have to assume responsibility. Tenzin Gyatso, 14. Dalai Lama, The Global Community And the Need for Universal Responsibility, 1992

Dualism (US:THEM) versus Unity (WE)

  • Actually the [deeply ingrained] concept of WE and [against] THEM is no longer there – according to the new reality. [...] Therefore treat others as a part of yourself. The entire world should be part of WE. Here we need the concept of oneness of humanity [...] and we need a sense of global responsibility. [...] The reality is no longer separate, this I feel.

Money grants no peace.

  • Even billionaires who have plenty of money and are therefore quite influential are very unhappy persons. I also have met some of them. Deep inside those powerful leaders have much anxiety, much fear, much distress. H.H. Dalai Lama, Peace Summit, clip 2 of 4 last section, minute 14:53-17:59, Vancouver, Sunday 27. September 2009

Women

 

  • 1. Money or wealth failed to bring inner peace.
    2. Modern education [ science] failed to bring inner peace.
    3. Technology also failed to bring inner peace.
    ..................................................................................................
    4. In the 21st century we need to promote human values, ethics, compassion and affection.
    Women are more sensitive to pain or suffering of others. […]
    Therefore, [women of the Western world] please take a more active role.

Wars

  • Warfare has traditionally been carried out primarily by men, since they seem better physically equipped for aggressive behavior. Women, on the other hand, tend to be more caring and more sensitive to others’ discomfort and pain. Although men and women have the same potentials for aggression and warm-heartedness, they differ in which of the two more easily manifests. Thus, if the majority of world leaders were women, perhaps there would be less danger of war and more cooperation on the basis of global concern – although, of course, some women can be difficult! I sympathize with feminists, but they must not merely shout. They must exert efforts to make positive contributions to society. H.H. Dalai Lama, 2007 International Congress on the Women's Role in the Sangha: Bhikshuni Vinaya and Ordination Lineages, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany, 18.-20. July 2007, transcripted by Alexander Berzin, August 2007

 

  • [W]ar and the large military establishments are the greatest sources of violence in the world. Whether their purpose is defensive or offensive, these vast powerful organizations exist solely to kill human beings. […] Most of us have been conditioned to regard military combat as exciting and glamorous – an opportunity for men to prove their competence and courage. Since armies are legal, we feel that war is acceptable; in general, nobody feels that war is criminal or that accepting it is criminal attitude. In fact, we have been brainwashed. War is neither glamorous nor attractive. It is monstrous. Its very nature is one of tragedy and suffering.
    War is like a fire in the human community, one whose fuel is living beings. [...] Modern warfare waged primarily with different forms of fire [...] will burn living people. War also strongly resembles a fire in the way it spreads. Interview with H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989, newspaper  Man of Peace: His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, presented by interview Tibet Post International, Yeshe Choesang, 4.

Tibet fighting back China?

  • Question [at the end of a public talk]: Why didn't you fight back against the Chinese?
    Answer [Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile]: Well, war is obsolete, you know.
    [After a few moments, his face grave, he said]: "Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back, but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you. Unknown contributor

War – Peace dialogs

  • In the twenty-first century, the concept of war is out of date. Instead, we need dialogue to settle disputes and, for that, intelligence is not enough. We also need warm-heartedness and serious interest in the welfare of others. Compassion is more important for sincere dialogue. Women, because of the biological factor, have more sensitivity to the suffering of others than men have. For example, not many women are slaughterers or butchers. Therefore, for international negotiations, women are needed very much and need to take a larger role. H.H. Dalai Lama, 2007 International Congress on the Women's Role in the Sangha: Bhikshuni Vinaya and Ordination Lineages, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany, 18.-20. July 2007, transcripted by Alexander Berzin, August 2007

World peace will result from inner peace.


 

Fundamental culture: based on human dignity, equality, caring Integrity

  • On the fundamental level there are no differences between all human beings. Mentally, emotionally, physically we are the same. On that level there is hardly any reason to fight.

 

Secondary culture: status based, prideshame based Error

  • On the secondary level there are a lot of divisions and barriers. On the secondary level there are different nationalities, different races, different colors, different religions. Within the communities there are the richer, the poorer, the educated, the uneducated, the more respected because of their highly esteemed professions, some are looked down because of their work.
    Many man-made problems, I believe, are due to too much emphasis on the secondary level of differences. We are forgetting the basic oneness of human beings. Videopräsentation von Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989, Friedensgipfel, präsentiert von CTV.ca, Filmsequenz 2 von 4, 2/3 der Länge, Minute 50:13-55:00, Sonntag, 27.

The benefit of investigative intelligence

  • The lives of 6.8 billion human beings from different continents are very much interdependent, interconnected. All parts of the world are part of me. My own happy future, my success, my peaceful life depend on the rest of the world. That kind of conclusion can develop out of investigation, not just out of mere compassion. Video presentation by H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989, Peace Summit, presented by CTV.ca, video clip 2 of 4, 2/3rd section, minute 50:13-55:00, Vancouver, Canada, Sunday 27.

The benefit of human affection

  • At the time of our birth and within the following few weeks or months the main factor of our survival is affection, the mother's affection which also runs from the child towards the mother. It has no idea who that is but biologically it totally depends on its mother. So a the bond of affection is a very crucial feeling. Our lives start that way. In our blood we firstly appreciate the affection of others. Even those who kill millions of people without hesitation appreciate the affection of others. They also have the potential to show affection to others. Video presentation by H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989, Peace Summit, presented by CTV.ca, video clip 2 of 4, 2/3rd section, minute 50:13-55:00, Vancouver, Canada, Sunday 27.

Compassionate human nature

  • From the viewpoint of our basic nature I believe that human beings are basically more gentle, more compassionate.

  • All the positive states of mind such as love, compassion, insight and so on, have the quality that you can enhance their capacity and increase their potential to a limitless degree, if you regularly practice them through training and by developing constant familiarity with them. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 14. February 2011

 

(↓)

Kindness

  • The simple recognition that everyone else wants to be happy and not to suffer, just as I do, serves as a constant reminder against selfishness and partiality. It reminds us there is little to be gained from being kind and generous while hoping to win something in return. Actions motivated by a desire to earn a good name for ourselves are still selfish, even if they appear to be acts of kindness. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 22. August 2010

 

(↓)

Humility

  • It is important to distinguish between genuine humility, which is a type of modesty, and a lack of confidence. They are not the same thing at all, although many confuse them. This may explain, in part, why today humility is often thought of as a weakness, rather than as an indication of inner strength, especially in the context of business and professional life. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 29. October 2010

 

(↓)

Happiness / Intimacy

  • I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace. Source unknown

 

(↓)

Friendship

  • Genuine friendship emerges on the basis of trust. [...] In order to develop trust you must first extend (open) your heart. Be open, transferring, honest, truthful, treat others and animals kindly and warm-heartedly, then trust will come. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, The Quest for Happiness in Challenging Times, RealPlayer Video, sponsored by University of Miami, Miami, Florida, minute 20:00, 98:48 minutes duration, aired 26. October 2010

 

(↓)

Success vs. story telling

  • The planet does not need more 'successful people'. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places. It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with success as our culture is the set. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama

 

(↓)

Religion

  • We can't say that all religions are the same. Different religions have different views and fundamental differences. But it does not matter, as all religions are meant to help in bringing about a better world with better and happier human beings. On this level, I think that through different philosophical explanations and approaches, all religions have the same goal and the same potential. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 22. August 2010

 

  • It is very important to value all religious systems. Although they may have great philosophical differences, they all have precepts for cultivating a good attitude toward others and helping them. They all counsel the practice of love, compassion, patience, contentment, and observing society’s rules. Since all religions share these goals, it is important to respect them and to value the contribution they can make. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 21. January 2011

 

(↓)

Ethics

  • Some people automatically associate morality and altruism with a religious vision of the world. But I believe it is a mistake to think that morality is an attribute only of religion. We can imagine two types of spirituality:
    • one tied to religion,
    • while the other arises spontaneously in the human heart as an expression of love for our neighbors and a desire to do them good.
H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 12. May 2011

 

(↓)

Dignity

  • As long as we observe love for others and respect for their rights and dignity in our daily lives, then whether we are learned or unlearned, whether we believe in the Buddha or God, follow some religion or none at all, as long as we have compassion for others and conduct ourselves with restraint out of a sense of responsibility, there is no doubt we will be happy. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 20. September 2010

 

(↓)

Monotheism vs. polytheism

  • There are two kinds of religion in this world: one having a creator god, and the other not recognizing a creator of this reality. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Buddhist initiation ceremony in India, unknown date

 

(↓)

Meditation taught in school is the tool to end violence.

 

(↓)

Anger

  • Anger cannot be overcome by anger. If someone is angry with you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster. On the other hand, if you control your anger and show its opposite – love, compassion, tolerance and patience – not only will you remain peaceful, but the other person's anger will also diminish. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, 27. May 2011

 

(↓)

Rippling into a better world

  • The creation of a more peaceful and happier society has to begin from the level of the individual, and from there it can expand to one's family, to one's neighborhood, to one's community and so on. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, posted 9. Januar 2012

End of religion

See also: H.H. 14. Dalai Lama, Alexander Norman, contributor, Beyond Religion. Ethics for a Whole World, Mariner Books, 2011, reprint edition 6. November 2012

  • All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama, Facebook comment, posted 10. September 2012

 

  • Because we all share an identical need for love, it is possible to feel that anybody we meet, in whatever circumstances, is a brother or sister. No matter how new the face or how different the dress and behavior, there is no significant division between us and other people. It is foolish to dwell on external differences, because our basic natures are the same. In My Own Words. An Introduction to My Teachings and Philosophy, S. 17, Hay House, Inc., 2008, paperback 1. July 2011

Quotes on the Dalai Lama

Personal avowals

  • Meeting him [the Dalai Lama] in person was an incredible experience. What was most striking was the utter humanity of the man – he was very playful, very funny, but he took the conference's intellectual message very seriously. When you meet him, there's this strong sense of connection. He is full of deep affection. I felt that as well with the monks who work with him. Some of them have been studying with him for 25 years. […]
    That one person can have an effect on so many people is remarkable. Dacher Keltner, Ph.D., US American professor of psychology, University of California, Berkeley, director of the Greater Good Science Center, author, cited in: article Public Affairs, presented by Berkeley News, Carol Hyman, 3. November 2003

 

Deeper insight on hatred and ridicule – In the course of his prolonged discussions with H.H. the Dalai Lama US American anthropologist and psychologist Dr. Paul Ekman has changed his formerly held position on the function of hatred and ridicule.

  1. In my book Emotions revealed, I argue that hatred could in some circumstances motivate positive acts that were of benefit to the person and to society. And I've come to believe that, although that's true in the short run, in the long run hatred is corrosive and maybe it actually has a long-term harmful impact on the person.
  2. And the other thing, I think I've become most sensitive to, is the dangers of humor that involve any form of ridicule – which can be very funny, but I think has a very negative impact on the person who's enjoying that type of humor.

  • The Dalai Lama is widely respected as is his quote: "It is not enough for religious people to only be involved with prayer; rather, they are morally obliged to contribute all they can to solving the world's problems." Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, chapter 16 'Religion and Truth', S. 341, 2005

Quotes on Dalai's Lama's association with Sogyal Rinpoche

Personal avowals

  • I am an ex-cult member of tibetan lamaism and a retired licensed psychologist, and I was fooled, just like these people were, anyone can be seduced into these cults of spirituality, that are so dangerous to the critical thinking and intelligence of westerners. They are here to dumb us down further, that is what is the disconnect that people feel when they go to a Mind-Life program and can't believe the blathering of these so-called scientists, they are probably already cult members of the cult of lamaism, just because they have a Ph.D. doesn’t mean they can’t be a cult member of these fundamentalist, feudal and medieval occult organizations.
    Dr. Daniel Goleman (*1946) who sits at Sogyal Rinpoche's feet, as a devoted cult member, enabling Sogyal's sadistic sexual predatoriness, of vulnerable young woman, by endorsing him, (not to mention the mutual book endorsing club they all engage in for their pop dharma self-help books on Oprah's list) has actually broken his oath as a psychologist to report harm to others. Instead he promotes this little turd in robes, thus continuing to confuse and put in harm's way 1000 of students every year. Even though they know what Sogyal is doing, and know that it has reached such a serious level that the French police are investigating him. Dan Goleman wrote the book Emotional Intelligence that was so popular, but was to promote actually more anti-intellectualism in this country, he has been affiliated with the Mind and Life Institute for decades, but, in fact, is a stone cold cultist of lamaism. This is called 'splitting and compartmentalizing', a common feature of people in cults. Dan Coleman, is part of the Spirit Rock Center Syndicate of Psychologists, out of California. These lamas run million dollar corporations. This is a weaving of Spiritual consumerism, to get people to accept austerity programs for the future, as we are turned into a serfdom corporate fascism, with eastern religions keeping us 'content' and happy and not protesting the corporate takeover of our world.

  • Why do you think the Dalai Lama is on the World Wisdom Council of the Club of Rome, with the billionaire corporate 1%, he is there 'religious strategy' and the psychologists, always the arm of the state, have these 'retreats packed' with psychology-lite therapists out of places like Naropa, who spits them out, they don’t have clinical training they have 'spiritual'/psychological training and feel good therapies, more like ‘life coaches' than therapists, and they are all joined up, the new completely dumbed down professional middle class, who have integrated 'meditation lite' into their bag of tricks, and are great recruiters for these turds in robes, these hucksters, to help facilitate the selling their spiritual path to grow their million dollar empires.

Sogyal Rinpoche (*1947) Tibetan Dzogchen lama of the Nyingma tradition, founder and spiritual director of Rigpa, exposed sexual offender, Andrew Harvey (*1952) Indian-British religious scholar, Rumi translator and explicator, teacher of mystic traditions, architect of Sacred Activism, editor, poet, novelist, author, Patrick Gaffney, editor, Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, chapter 19, Harper Collins, 1992, Harper, San Francisco, revised edition 26. June 2012

  • A well-known 'author' of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and popular Tibetan Lama, with now two multimillion dollar lawsuits under his belt, one in 1994, and again in 2011, for allegedly sexually abusing and physically beating hundreds of western women, creates a harem of devoted western female enabling slaves. He is also feted and honored by the Dalai Lama, the wife of the former prime minister of France, and other lay and high lama celebrities at the opening of his western-funded, eight million dollar Lerab Ling Temple in France.
    Although there have been documentaries, articles, essays and reports about this Lama's egregious spiritual abuse, spiritual fraud and sexual exploitation of his students, since at least 1994, the long-term, enabling western teachers and devotees of the Lamas, will be going to this sexual exploiter's Lerab Ling center in 2015 to conduct another international seminar on 'Mindfulness and Awareness.' These are the same people that have ensured for decades that this Lama Sogyal Rinpoche and his sexual abuses are always protected so he can continue unhampered, the last of his die-hard enablers in whom 'mindfulness and awareness' clearly no longer exists.

  • Someone very helpful to the Dalai Lama and protected by the main stream media is a well-known putative author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying and popular Tibetan Lama in the West, Sogyal Rinpoche. This lama now has, not one, but two multi-million dollar lawsuits under his belt, one in 1994, settled for millions, and again in 2011, for allegedly sexually abusing and physically beating two of his devotees and possibly hundreds of other Western women.
    Sogyal Rinpoche was feted and honored by the Dalai Lama, the wife of the former prime minister of France and other lay and high lama and Hollywood celebrities at Sogyal's gala 2008 opening of his elaborate, western eight million dollar, Western-funded Lerab Ling Temple in France. The Dalai Lama  has also recently inaugurated Sogyal Tenzin's Gyatso Institute, in 2010 in The United States, named after the Dalai Lama and given His Holiness's "blessings" with the sole purpose to bring Tibetan monks and lamas to study and infiltrate further into our higher educational system.

Synthese-Dialog mit dem Dalai Lama – Indien, 1999

Eine von dem Laienmönch Bruder Wayne Robert Teasdale (1945-2004) initiierte vorwiegend US-amerikanische Gruppe von visionären Philosophen, Friedensaktivisten, Kern- und Quantenphysikern, spirituellen Avantgarde-Denkern aus verschiedenen Religionen und Kulturen, Bestsellerautoren, Psychotherapeuten, Biologen, Soziologen und Journalisten trafen sich zur Jahrtausendwende bei einer Thinktank-Konferenz in Dharamsala, Indien, 11.-16. September 1999, um eine Synthese-Gruppe zu bilden und deren Ergebnisse dem Dalai Lama vorzulegen.

 

Einige der Mitwirkenden der Synthese-Gruppe waren:

 

 

Die unterschiedlichen Charaktere der Gruppe wurden sich allmählich einig in der Erkenntnis, dass ein langfristig wirksamer spirituell orientierter Friedensweg des Einzelnen allen Menschen letztlich ermöglichen wird, ein zufriedenes Leben mit weniger Leid zu führen.

 

Den in einem World Cafe Brainstorming gefassten und gemeinsam vorgetragenen Vorschlag dieser Gruppe von Vordenkern, die Tibeter mögen mit Sanktionen aufwarten, um die chinesische Regierung zum Umdenken zu zwingen, wies der Dalai Lama zurück. Er argumentierte: Wenn die Chinesen, die knapp ein Fünftel der Weltbevölkerung ausmachen, dadurch leiden, leidet die Welt und wiederum Tibet. Er befürwortet hingegen und engagiert sich für eine friedliche Koexistenz, Weltfrieden und die Spiritualisierung der Menschheit.

Synthese in der Gegenwart des Dalai Lama

Das Zusammenspiel der vierzig Avantgard-Denker gestaltet sich zunächst disharmonisch. Sie halten sich mit Fachdiskussionen auf und gehen aufeinander los.

Im Austausch und durch die Vermittlung des Dalai Lama ergibt sich eine Synthese.

 

Der Dalai Lama dient den visionären Wissenschaftlern und Vordenkern als Vorbild. Er lehrt seine Gäste anhand seiner kindlich lachenden und unbefangenen freundlichen Art, Herzensqualitäten zu entwickeln. Einige der hitzköpfigen Spezialisten begreifen nach Tagen des Brainstormings im Rahmen des World Cafe Modells, dass sie sich selbst ändern müssen, ehe sie miterleben können, wie sich die Menschheit verändert.

 

Im Lauf der sechs Tage währenden Dialogprozesse entdecken die KonferenzteilnehmerInnen grundlegende menschliche Werte aufs Neue, was sie zur Synthese der wissenschaftlichen und spirituellen Ansätze finden lässt.

Filmzitate – Dalai Lama Renaissance

  • Der Grund, weshalb ich mich für solch eine Konferenz interessiere, ist, dass jeder Mensch die Verantwortung – und zwar die moralische Verantwortung – hat, über die Menschheit nachzudenken – und zwar über die Zukunft der Menschen. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989

 

  • "Synthesis" [...] da gibt es eine Art Potential bei dem die Kräfte aufeinanderprallen. Diese beiden Arten von Energie [...] zwei sich widersprechende Dinge vereinigen sich [...] und lassen eine Art von neuer Energie entstehen [...] oder eine neue Idee. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989

 

  • Es gibt ein tibetisches Sprichwort: Bessere Ideen kommen von hundert Leuten, die nicht so kluge Köpfe sind – statt von einem einzelnen großen Denker oder einem großartigen und hochintelligenten Menschen. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989

 

  • Es geht um die Förderung der menschlichen Werte. Die Förderung von [...] menschlicher Spiritualität und Frieden. Das ist das Hauptziel. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989

 

  • Ich glaube, dass es einen Geist der Menschlichkeit oder die EINE Menschlichkeit gibt. Betrachten Sie die Menschlichkeit als das Höchste. Dalai Lama XIV. (Tenzin Gyatso) [Tanchu Dhondup] (*1935) tibetischer Mönch, geistliches Oberhaupt des tibetischen Buddhismus, Linienhalter der Gelug-Schule, Friedensnobelpreisträger, 1989

Movie quotes – Dalai Lama Renaissance

Religions

  • I believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we all are seeking something better in life. So, I think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989
(↓)

Kindness

 

 

  • This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

 

  • Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

 

  • All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness […] the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

Happiness

  • I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

 

 

 

  • It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

 

  • As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery. […] we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

Goodness

 

  • It is necessary to help others, not only in our prayers, but in our daily lives. If we find we cannot help others, the least we can do is to desist from harming them. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

Friendship

  • Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

Speaking and silence

Reason

  • The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

 

(↓)

Responsibility

  • Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989

 

(↓)

Better world

  • With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world. H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989
