I always believe we are the
same; we are all human beings.
Of course, there are
background or way of
may be differences in our faith,
or we may be of a different
color, but we are human beings,
consisting of the human body and
the human mind. Our physical
structure is the same, and our
mind, and our
are also the same.
Wherever I meet people, I always
have the feeling that I am encountering another human being, just like
myself. I find it is much easier to communicate with others on that level.
If we emphasize specific characteristics, like I am Tibetan or I am
then there are differences. But those things are secondary. If we can leave
the differences aside, I think we can easily communicate, exchange ideas,
and share experiences....
Internal peace is an essential first step to
achieving peace in the world. How do you cultivate it? It's very simple. In
the first place by realizing clearly that all mankind is one, that human
beings in every country are members of one and the same family.
