New Delhi, India, January 25, 2015 - Today, at 9 o’clock in the morning His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave a short talk to about 300 students and staff residing at the Tibetan Youth Hostel in Rohini, Delhi. He was introduced by Mrs Tsering Dolma, Director of the Tibetan Youth Hostel, who first offered His Holiness a traditional white scarf.
His Holiness began by saying, “Wherever I go, I always emphasise that myself and the audience are the same in being human. If I present myself as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, it distances me from you as there is only one Dalai Lama in the whole world. But all 7 billion people are the same: we have the same intelligence and potential for love and compassion. We were born from our mothers who breastfed us and we will die the same way.”
