Tibetans are real holders of Nalanda tradition, says Dalai Lama

December 26, 2010

Gangtok, Dec 21, 2010, (ANI) -- Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama
has said that Tibetans are the real holders of Nalanda tradition and are
true followers of Indian gurus (teachers).

Inaugurating an International Conference on Science, Spirituality and
Education here on Monday, the Dalai Lama said: ""I am always proud to
say that we are the real holders of the real Nalanda tradition.
Important methods and concepts of Buddhism would always rely on Nalanda
masters, so we are the true followers of Nalanda tradition. That is why
I always say, we are disciples of India and Indians are our Guru," he added.

He further said that world peace cannot be achieved only through prayers
and blessings.

"World peace cannot come through prayers or through blessings; peace
must come through our actions. Action is more important than prayers or
blessings," he added.

He also said that it is the duty of the people to protect various kinds
of faith and religion.

He underlined the importance of spiritualism alongside the knowledge of
modern sciences and technologies. (ANI)
