London, UK, 23 October 2012 - In London today, His Holiness the Dalai Lama was the guest of the Legatum Institute at a Symposium on Ethics for a More Prosperous World joining in a conversation with accomplished young professionals from a variety of backgrounds, including finance, politics, the law, and journalism. President and CEO of the Legatum Institute (www.li.com) Jeffrey Gedmin introduced His Holiness saying that he had been charmed by his recent book, Beyond Religion - Ethics for a Whole World.
In his opening remarks His Holiness said,
“Brothers and sisters, the most important thing is that we are all human beings. The problems we are trying to reduce today concern all humanity. Therefore, we have to discuss them on a human level. We are social animals; because our success comes from co-operating with each other, we have to respect the rights and well-being of others while keeping in mind our own.”
