Dalai Lama urges young Indian scholars to revive native Indian knowledge

DHARAMSHALA, Jan. 24: Exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama today met with a group of young Indian scholars at his residence here, urging them to help in the revival the ancient Indian tradition that is no longer in prominence in its native land.

The octogenarian Tibetan leader who in the last few years have emphasized his commitment to restore the wealth of Indian knowledge said that he has learned, particularly the Nalanda tradition that found a second home in the centuries since its birth in India. “My latest commitment is to revive this knowledge through education, not through puja. Of course that is part of Indian culture, but real culture is the knowledge that is within. That is India’s culture,” he told the gathering.

“The Nalanda tradition does not only contain the explanation of Buddhism as a religion, it encompasses a profound explanation on understanding of human psychology, emotions and how to tackle them,” adding that these knowledge should not be boxed into a religious learnings but into academic syllabus of modern Indian education system.

The Dalai Lama further said, “India’s ancient knowledge is very useful to today’s world. Now in order to help other countries, first this knowledge should be revived in this country. You, Indians please pay more attention to your ancient knowledge on inner world. Without inner peace, we cannot achieve external peace.”

The group of young Indian scholars are in Dharamshala for a three-day conference organised by the Central Tibetan Administration’s think tank, the Tibet Policy Institute since Tuesday.

Scholars from various Universities and colleges such as the Delhi University, JNU, University of Madras presented papers and research findings on multiple topics such as Indo-Tibetan Relations in Dehradun: Case Study of Guru-Chela or Journey of Mutual Dialogue? Multiculturalism: Understanding Tibetan Refugees Struggle to reclaim identity, Implications of Ramayana in Indo-Tibetan Interactions: a study, Impact of Modernization on Different Sects of Buddhism in Ladakh (India), among others.
