Dalai Lama’s message on 10 years of 9/11

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.

“9/11 reminds us of the horror we humans can unleash on ourselves when we allow our intelligence and powerful technology to be overtaken by hatred,” the Dalai Lama said in his message.

“We 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,” he said.

“This 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,” 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.
