Punjab : “Despite the sky-rocketing material development, inner peace is still lacking in people”, said His Holiness the Dalai Lama today at Chandigarh University. His Holiness the Dalai Lama addressed the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak’s celebration at the university where he spoke on ‘Secular Ethics in Modern Education’. His Holiness reminded wanting a happy life is the most innate want of human beings which brings them together and creates a sense of community. And without this sense of oneness, he affirms that individual existence in the world is futile.


His Holiness asserted that beneath the different statuses and professions created by humans lies the virtues of the man nurtured and molded by a mother’s compassion and affection. Dalai Lama called out to embrace this virtue of love and compassion which he claimed is the basic human nature. His Holiness condemned the kind of education system that is only inclusive about material development while neglecting the basic human values. Meanwhile, he urged the practice of non-violence (Ahimsa) in action and Karuna (compassion) in daily life to tackle negative emotions. “I have realised that India’s thousand-year-old tradition of secular ethics is very much needed in today’s world” said His Holiness the Dalai Lama in order to bring forth peace of mind and combat destructive emotions. His Holiness called himself the product of ancient India’s traditions because of the knowledge and wisdom he received while growing up which is entirely inspired by the ancient Nalanda tradition.

He emphasised combining ancient Indian knowledge and modern education to bring about inner peace. On the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji Dalai Lama said that many great spiritual leaders including Guru Nanak depict compassion, ahimsa, and religious harmony. He further advised to not just celebrate the memory of the great India Spiritual leaders but rather earnestly follow their advice and implement the teachings in daily life. “I have spent a major span of my life in this country, I am the longest guest on this soil. I feel India is a great nation and India can make a significant contribution to the well being of 7 billion human beings id they promote their ancient tradition.” His Holiness said. His Holiness concluded by remarking that people in Punjab are found to be religious minded and hardworking at the same time which he noted was a commendable thing. The event was attended by Chancellor Satnam Singh Sandhu and Vice-Chancellor Dr. R.S Bawa, dignitaries, staff, faculty members and students of Chandigarh University.
