July 18, 2016

The Tribune, July 13, 2016 - Concerned over the mass killing of innocent people by militant groups in the name of religion in different parts of world, Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama today said that no religion teaches violence and killing of innocent people.

Dalai Lama arrived in Mandi District (HP) today to attend the three-day teaching session at Rewalsar Mandi. He will also deliver lecturers on Za Patrul Rinpoche’s Heart Treasure of the Saints, The Practice of View, Meditation and Action till July 15.

Without naming any militant group, he said involvement of people in mass killing in the name of religion was disturbing the harmony of many nations.

“No religion allows us to slay human being or animals and those involved in such killings are criminals who have no concern with the religion” he added.

The Nobel Laureate said “a person should be kind in his behavior. We cannot discriminate on the basis of religion as all regions are equal and lead people towards peace and tranquility.

The spiritual leader was accorded warm welcome by his followers in the town. He arrived here at 11 am in Nyingmapa monastery. Thousands of his followers, including foreign nationals, were present to attend the sermon of His Holiness.

Secretary of monastery, Sher Singh Negi, said the Dalai Lama, a beacon of peace, consented to grace the occasion, the anniversary of the birth of Guru Padmasambhava, which is widely celebrated throughout Tibet.
