Appreciating LPU environment, one of the most celebrated religious leaders Dalai Lama invoked students: “Preserve India’s great culture for a better world as overall picture of India is harmony. India is ‘Guru’ of all Tibetans and we are its strong disciples. India should share its power of tolerance with the world and youth and people of India should practice it within India. In fact, India is like a guru to the world also.” He demanded of students: “You are the 21st century people and should make this a century of peace, love and compassion all over the globe. You should not take life for ease. You should work hard and be optimistic. Our prime purpose in this life is to help others as we all are human beings of one world. To make self and others feel happy; we must practice compassion. This is my simple religion. The present problems in the world are created only by the people themselves. We will have to solve out these ourselves. No God or prayers can get us out of our self created problems. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple and its philosophy should be peace and compassion.” Invoking girl students, he said: "Being more sensitive, women should share more responsibility to bring harmony in the world”. The need for global peace, human love, compassion remained the underlying message throughout his convocation address and interactions.
Eulogizing the esteemed Chief Guest, LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal exclaimed: “His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso is great propagator of global peace, committed to promote secular ethics and inter-religious harmony. We are indeed fortunate enough on welcoming him to such a prestigious occasion when thousands of students are ready to open new chapter of their life.” Inspiring students from the life history of the hon’ble guest, Mr Mittal shared: “Dalai Lama’s teaching has inspired billions of people all over the world to seek peace and practice forgiveness. It is his aura of personality and sheer love for the world that make him the most inspiring leader of the world. Through his life of struggles, I want you to know that when Dalai Lama was just 23 years old he had to stand up against the largest military power, and later on he won the Noble prize for his compassion and peace. You too can achieve whatever you dream of. I have no doubt in sharing that following Dalai Lama’s teachings you will reach amazing heights in the times to come!”
