The latest Dugpa to join the Dalai Lama.
“Gaga pulled questions from social media in their conversation that addressed a wide range of topics, with a primary focus on mental health and wellness. Meditation and inner peace are a central tenet of Buddhism, and the pair discussed how a newbie can get started in the practice, with Gaga sheepishly admitting that she does indeed know a bit about it.
On a more serious note, the Dalai Lama fielded questions about how to deal with tragedy in our increasingly hostile world, using the recent tragedy in Orlando as a reference. “Many positive, happy things are there if you look at the wider perspective,” he says, embodying the Buddhist mindset of focusing on the bigger picture”.
Here is something I have had sitting in my drafts for a few months.
Dalai Lama on Paris attacks: ‘Work for peace, and don’t expect help from God and governments’
“People want to lead a peaceful lives. The terrorists are short-sighted, and this is one of the causes of rampant suicide bombings. We cannot solve this problem only through prayers. I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place”.
“We need a systematic approach to foster humanistic values, of oneness and harmony”.
(Loss of individuality. You.)
“If we start doing it now, there is hope that this century will be different from the previous one. It is in everybody’s interest. So let us work for peace within our families and society, and not expect help from God, Buddha or the governments”.
“I believe it is the best way. Many of my friends, including Indian, American and European leaders believe it is the realistic way. In Tibet, political activists, Chinese intellectuals and students support our ‘Middle Way’ policy”.
Many leaders believe it is the realistic way …”Middle Way Policy”.
Who decides what is the “middle way” POLICY?

Lets not forget the pseudo spiritual piggy backing Artificial Intelligence that is already in play – brought to you by dugpas of varying degrees. Many dugpas decry transhumanism while they themselves are carriers of synthetic consciousness.
And another post with Dugpa Russ.
