The reality today is that we are all interdependent and have to co-exist on this
small planet. Therefore, the only sensible and intelligent way of resolving differences
and clashes of interests, whether between individuals or nations, is through dialogue.

"Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the
people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free."
Beings, indeed all sentient beings, have the right to pursue happiness and live
in peace and freedom.
human beings, whatever their cultural or historical background, suffer when they
are intimidated, imprisoned or tortured . . . We must, therefore, insist on a
global consensus, not only on the need to respect human rights worldwide, but
also on the definition of these rights . . . for it is the inherent nature of
all human beings to yearn for freedom, equality and dignity, and they have an
equal right to achieve that."
"Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed,

The problems we face today, violent conflicts, destruction of nature, poverty,
hunger and so on, are human-created problems which can be resolved through human
effort, understanding and the development of a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood.

"When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around
us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring
starts within each one of us. When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with
those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share peace
with neighboring communities, and so on. When we feel love and kindness towards
others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also
to develop inner happiness and peace."
I appreciate any organization or individual people who sincerely make an effort
to promote harmony between humanity, and particularly harmony between the various
religions. I consider it very sacred work and very important work

A LIFE OF COMPASSION
"Ultimately, humanity is one and this small
planet is our only home. If we are to protect this home of ours, each of us needs
to experience a vivid sense of universal altruism. It is only this feeling that
can remove the self-centered motives that cause people to deceive and misuse one
another. If we have, a sincere and open heart, we naturally feel self-worth and
confidence, and there is no need to be fearful of others. The key to a happier
world is the growth of compassion. We do not need to become religious, nor do
we need to believe in an ideology. All that is necessary is for each of us to
develop our good human qualities."
believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop
a greater sense of universal responsibility. We must all learn to work not just
for our own self, family, or nation but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal
responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world
peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and through concern for future
generations, the proper care of the environment."

believe that individuals can make a difference in society. Since periods of change
such as the present one come so rarely in human history, it is up to each of us
to make the best use of our time to help create a happier world.
prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least
don't hurt them.
believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in
the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction.

Every human should have the idea of taking care of the environment, of nature,
of water. So using too much or wasting water should have some kind of feeling
or sense of concern. Some sort of responsibility and with that, a sense of discipline.
