Vancouver, Canada 11 September 2006 (Robyn Stubbs / 24 Hours) Here are a Few Insights from the Dalai Lama's Public Talk, Cultivating Happiness, at GM Place:
 
- 'Even though we've never met, deep down, I know you ... because we are all the same. We are human beings -    mentally, emotionally, physically, we are all the same.'

- '[Religions] are fundamentally different, but they all have the same goal: Warm-heartedness.'

- 'From the day of birth to the last day, to death, compassion is the key to a meaningful life.'

- '[The purpose] of our hands is not for boxing, but for hugging.'

- 'We cannot promote human value through law, through police, through force - only through good qualities.'

- 'All religions have the same potential to help humanity.'
