Although I am a Buddhist monk, I am skeptical that prayers alone will achieve world peace. We need instead to be enthusiastic and self-confident in taking action.

@DalaiLama First step on the path to peace is understanding the causality of peace. No matter how vigorously we stir a boiling pot of soup on a fire, the soup will not cool. When we remove the pot from the fire, it will cool on its own, and our stirring will hasten the process. (1/2)

Yes, H.H, sir, it would be wonderful if you offer public support to Ashin Wirathu, the 'enthusiastic and self-confident' monk from Myanmar who believes in taking action!

Aunque sea un monje budista, soy escéptico de que solo con oraciones alcanzaremos la paz en el mundo. Más bien, debemos ser entusiastas y tener la confianza de tomar acciones.

Both @Pontifex and the @DalaiLama are concerned about the world.

We are not crazy.
We are not alone.
We are our greatest strength.

Dear Dalai Lama: You could start by counselling the extremist monks in #Myanmar and #SriLanka who are destroying peace and making a mockery of what Buddha taught.

@DalaiLama Compassion, kindness, love, humility and humblenes - we need more of these things in the world. These are the divine characters which can restore the peace and happiness.
Pain will not go away by getting angry or bitter, it will go away when we will assimilate these characters

Lúcido tuit del @DalaiLama a quienes asumen la espiritualidad como apartarse del mundo y los demás de forma contemplativa: “Si bien soy monje budista,soy escéptico a que mediante rezos se alcance la paz mundial.Lo que se precisa en cambio es actuar de forma entusiasta y decidida”

@DalaiLama Words are very beautiful, but more important than believing and speaking words. Dr. #MohammadAliTaheri is 7 years in prison in Evin Prison.
He is the spiritual teacher of his message of love and peace and freedom.
Please support them🙇

@DalaiLama Only prayers won't achieve world peace. Even some people pray for destruction of others.
The change in mentality & love for humanity will achieve world peace. And each human would have to contribute in this. 🙏

World peace is unattainable w/o the Sun developing into red giant & swallowing the earth. Everything on earth is fighting for survival, be it on land, air or sea. Inner peace is possible, especially if people have equal access to resources, but it's unlikely w/o justice.

It is time for us to act in peace and goodwill for all.
Time to stand against this evil swirling around us.

@DalaiLama Each individual around the world must try to be a better person so that it can be reflected in its immediate environment.
The daily practice of kindness is a good start.

Interesante que hasta el Dalai Lama deba recordar que vivimos en un mundo físico y que es necesario actuar. Esas pseudofilosofías New Age que prometen la felicidad material y espiritual solo desde "el pensamiento" son basura

@DalaiLama “A Dios rogando y con el mazo dando” St Therese used to say, which poorly translates into: “praying to God while working on it”. We certainly cannot expect God to do all the work alone! 😊

@DalaiLama Once a man came & brought love to the world.But Iran couldn't take it & immediately chaned him in prison, faced him with long_term sufferings, as long as 7yrs in solidary confinement, 2 #deathpenalties, flogs...still in cage. He needs ur voice.

@DalaiLama @Chihiro_NoFace My sister is an Evangelical Christian. I've actually heard her say she hopes trump starts a war. (no doubt so she can rapture) Some believers not only aren't praying for peace, they actually want war!

The noblest of intentions are worth nothing. If you see a chance to improve the world, get up and get it done.

Hear, hear...a Buddist monk, the @DalaiLama says "that prayers alone" is not enough and invites all to "take action". Creating cities is the same: NO time to be spectators: action. Write to politicians and media, attend public meetings, run for office, volunteer...do!

You’re Goddamn right, my dude.

With your progressive mentality, you should be renamed to ‘Dalai Baru’ instead.

"Peace" can also prevail in an unjust society. How can that be the final objective of any serious religion?

Hear, hear! Stop thinking prayer is the only (or even a) solution. Sometimes as humans we need to act in a responsible manner so that praying for a solution is not necessary.

Not only will prayers *alone* not achieve world peace, they literally will not do anything.

To the extent that *time* is spent praying, there's actually opportunity cost involved. Take some action yourself, if you'd like things to change.

Isn’t scepticism part of Buddhist philosophy? Dear @DalaiLama, you need not use the word “Although” :-)

Even the Dalai Lama said it takes more than prayers. Action is just as important. God rewards those who work for what they want.
