DHARAMSHALA, September 30: Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama today reiterated his appeal to Buddhists in Burma and Sri Lanka to stop the communal violence. The Tibetan leader was speaking to devotees on the first day of his teachings on Nagarjuna’s Sixty Stanzas of Reasoning (Rigpa Drugchupa) and Tsongkhapa’s Concise Treatises on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim Dudon).

“Earlier there were crisis among Buddhist and Muslims in Burma and Sri Lanka. Burmese monks were even regarded as terrorists and it is very sad,” said His Holiness the Dalai Lama. “Recently, I visited Prague, Czech Republic to attend Forum 2000 and Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi was also there. I spoke with her and she was really concerned,” His Holiness recalled.

“Have faith in your own religion but respect all other religions,” He noted. “This will bring unity among various religions.”

The winner of 1989 Nobel peace prize began his three and a half-day teaching at the request of a group of Taiwanese at Tsuglakhang, the Main Tibetan Temple.

According to the Department of Security, over 5000 disciples from 54 countries, including 900 Taiwanese and Chinese, are in attendance at the teachings.

His Holiness said, “In 1965 or 1966, I visited Malaysia and Singapore and we prayed Sherab Nyingpo* together. Many Chinese used to pray Sherab Nyingpo in the past but lately I feel like it has declined which is quite sad.”

“We meet almost every year and pray Sherab Nyingpo together, and we not only recite the words of the Sherab Nyingpo, we think of its meaning,” He added.

Live webcasts of the teachings from September 30- October 3, 2013 is available at the official website of the Dalai Lama. His Holiness will be speaking in Tibetan with English, Chinese, Vietnamese and Russian language translations available.

Following the teachings, the Dalai Lama is then scheduled to visit the Unites States of America from October 8 to 20, where he will give Public talks, teachings and attend panel discussion.

*(teaching from the Heart Sutra regarded as the summation of the heart wisdom of Buddha)
