Dharamsala :The Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has asked all to remember the innocent lives lost and ponder the impact of the tragic day on September 11, ten years ago.
â€œ9/11 reminds us of the horror we humans can unleash on ourselves when we allow our intelligence and powerful technology to be overtaken by hatred,â€ the Dalai Lama said in his message.
â€œWe need to learn from our painful memories of 9/11 and become aware of the destructive consequences that arise when we give in to feelings of hatred,â€ he said.
â€œThis tragedy in particular has reinforced my belief that fostering a spirit of peaceful co-existence and mutual understanding among people all over the world and all faith traditions is an urgent matter for all of us,â€ he said.
The nobel peace prize winner said we must make every effort to ensure that all faith traditions contribute to building a more caring and peaceful world.
The Dalai Lama fled Tibet after a failed coup against communist China in 1959, and since then has been living in the northern Indian hill town of Dharamsala in the state of Himachal Pradesh.
