Consumerism behind agony: Dalai
Hindustan Times[Thursday, February 09, 2006 21:00]
Varanasi, February 8 - EXPRESSING CONCERN over the growing consumerism worldwide, Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, said it had caused mental agony and restlessness in society. Even though external development of human begins had taken place through various means of consumerism, their inner pleasures and feelings remained unsatisfied.

“Love, compassion and mercy are necessary for the existence of humanity. I often say that the best religion is the one that can keep human beings away from sorrow,” the Dalai Lama said.

The welfare of humanity is not possible without adopting love, compassion and mercy, he added.

While interacting with noted Buddhist scholars in the conference hall of the Central Tibetan Institute for Higher Studies in Sarnath on Wednesday, the Dalai Lama said Buddhism was not only based on faith, but also on discussions.

Focussing on the significance of Buddhist traditions, he said it consisted of the written tradition in Pali and Sanskrit languages.

The significance of Buddhist religious works had enhanced because of their translation in Chinese, Korean and Tibetan languages.

Expressing his views on the occasion, the 17th Karmapa, Dorje Trinley, said Buddhism contained a strong philosophical aspect.
