The Dalai Lama is a informed figure to the universe given of his advocacy for non-violence, environmental protection, human rights, and pacific coexistence. The 82-year-old priest has something new on his mind newly — the arise of nationalism. He is seeing the boost in the United States, and worldwide.
Recently, at a discussion for Tibet supporters held in northern India, where the Buddhist priest has lived in outcast given 1959, the Dalai Lama was very outspoken on a list of things that regard him:
- President Trump’s “America first” policy
- America’s position on global warming
- the use of the military in inapt ways
It wasn’t all doom and dejection and disastrous — the Dalai Lama “praised the United States and voiced wish that the American people will continue to do the right things, including with honour to Tibet.” So — he doesn’t conclude Trump much, but still has faith in the American people.
In an elaboration, he added:
The benefaction president, in the very commencement he mentioned ‘America first.’ That sounded in my ear not very nice.
The benefaction boss is not much profitable courtesy to ecology. So on that, we feel some reservation.
While the event, The Five Fifty Forum, was held under a despotic order of anonymity called the Chatham House Rule, special permission was postulated for the recover of some of the Dalai Lama’s statements.
Because he has always been an disciple for pacific solutions, he was vicious of the strenuous use of military force universe far-reaching and appealed to all nations to work on elucidate problems using tact rather than violence. Reiterating that the use of military force never achieves goals, he stated:
Every problem on this planet, including the problem, must be solved with honour and jointly excusable [solutions].
Although rarely vicious of the United States under it’s stream leadership, he did not extent his explanation to just the U.S. He also commented on the Brexit opinion and combined that the European Union should be a indication for the universe — with everybody operative together toward common goals. He would also like to eventually open discussions with the Chinese to fin a “mutually excusable solution for Tibet.” While that doesn’t seem likely, he confirmed an honesty to the idea.
