The Dalai Lama speaks

S. SUBRAMANIUM

TO his many followers the world over, he is the repository of wisdom, self-effacement and affection. The Dalai Lama, despite the adulation and veneration, remains unaffected and totally humane. While releasing a book on contemporary writings in Buddhism, he stressed the need to be able to relate to religious practices and involve the self in a more complete manner. He said that suffering came from a negative state of mind. "The question that arises is, can we not get rid of negative emotions? It is important to analyse the mind. What is consciousness? What is the nature of different emotions? How can we overcome suffering until we stop the source that is responsible for it?" The Dalai Lama said that he believed all traditions are concerned with human happiness and all teachings try and promote positive human values.
