Compassion is Commonsense: Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama winds up his tour of Sydney today, following a
campaign with a message of human compassion.

The 72-year-old Nobel laureate is winding up a five-day schedule of
meditation teachings with the theme of compassion for all taking centre stage.

Last night, the Tibetan religious leader told a packed house at The
Dome at Sydney Olympic Park that human compassion begins with
honesty, forgiveness and tolerance.

Compassion is a case of commonsense, he said, not religion.

The exiled spiritual leader will return to Tibet tomorrow, without
seeing Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, who has been overseas visiting
Japan and Indonesia.

But he leaves a few words of advice for world leaders like the Prime
Minister - have a holiday and spend time with your families, before
discussing political differences.
