DHARAMSHALA, October 21: His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in a dialogue with representatives of the international network of engaged Buddhists this morning, said the words Hinayana and Mahayana create a wrong impression of division.

“These two traditions should now combine,” he added saying that the basis of Buddha Dharma is the Pali and Sanskrit tradition that emphasizes the use of the logical approach.

He was speaking about the human-created suffering and the tendency to push away what is different that includes religious divisions and violence.

Reiterating the promotion of religious harmony as one of his commitments, he said the world Buddhist community has the special responsibility of bringing world peace through inner peace.

It can be done, he said, by combining Buddha Dharma with modern science and by adopting an analytical approach in the 21stcentury, instead of being faith-based.

He opined that Buddha’s teaching could last at least two or three centuries whereas it could disappear within one or two generations if it remains faith-based.

The concept of “mother sentient being”, the belief that all sentient beings are like one’s own mother is very helpful in bringing peace among different communities whether believers or nonbelievers.

His Holiness emphasized the common wish of all human beings to be happy. “As a human being, my number one commitment is to promote the sense of oneness, respecting other’s rights and sense of concern for others.”

Representatives from more than 14 countries including Japan, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Burma, and Bangladesh were present in the audience.
