"Throughout his speech the Dalai Lama emphasized the importance of compassion, responsibility and interfaith harmony.
'Whether you believe this religion or that religion, we are all the same human beings', said the Dalai Lama."
This argument that is going on here of, "My religion is better than yours!"- this is the basis of war! Is it not possible to read about this message of peace and not argue about such irrelevant details? It is not possible to really know the answers to any of these questions until we are dead. Sure, we can all wonder about them and pose theories, but in the end, that is all that they are. We will all find out the answers soon enough. While we are here on this earth together, can we not accept this message of peace for what it is?
