His Holiness The Dalai Lama in Australia


Melbourne Public Talk



“Compassion and forgiveness, these are the real ultimate sources of power for peace and success in life. We need to use differences in a positive way. Try to get energy from different views, from different opinions. Make dialogue - this is the proper way to solve problems. Only then will genuine peace between nations come - from mutual respect not from weapons or force.”

His Holiness has been a champion of World Peace for over 50 years and on this day 20 years ago, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his non-violent, middle way approach to finding a solution to the situation in Tibet.

Today His Holiness will speak of the responsibility we all have for World Peace. By applying wisdom and compassion, we have the ability to resolve firstly our own differences with offers and then work together to create peace and harmony in our own community and the greater world.

Do not miss the opportunity to hear one of the most respected and thoughtful figures of our time. Reconsider what is important to you and how you can make a difference to Our Future.

The days events will be compared by Rove McManus.
