Maybe you like this news also... :twothumbsup:

Dalai Lama and Lady Gaga Talk Compassion at US Conference of Mayors

Before joining the conference proper, His Holiness held a 20-minute interview with pop singer Lady Gaga that was streamed live on Facebook, during which the Tibetan spiritual leader fielded questions gathered from social media on subjects ranging from meditation and mental health to social injustice.

Asked which type of meditation practice he has found to be the most effective, the Dalai Lama explained, “According to Indian tradition, there are two types of meditation: one type of meditation is single-pointed meditation; your mind remains focused on a certain thing . . . just remaining with a clarity of mind. . . . Another kind of meditation is analytical meditation.” He added, “For me, analytical meditation is much more powerful . . . analyzing what the cause is of the suffering.” (Lady Gaga Facebook)

On the subject of helping young people cope with issues such as poor self-esteem, addiction, and self-harm, His Holiness explained that rather than surrendering to materialism, it is essential to realize that “compassion is part of our life. Your mental attitude is [a] key factor. Your mental attitude is sound with self-confidence and foresightedness.” (YouTube)

“Despite it being our human nature to be compassionate, modern education is focused on external and material goals. There are always problems to face, but it makes a difference if our minds are calm. On the surface we may get upset, but it makes a difference if we are able to stay calm in the depths of our minds,” he said. “We are social animals, so our future depends on the rest of the community. Therefore, paying more attention to inner values like love and compassion are the right approach.” (His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet)

...

Throughout his speech, His Holiness made several appeals for global peace, describing compassion as the antidote to anger, frustration, and violence. “Now scientists even say, basic human nature is compassionate,” he noted. “The compassionate feeling toward your enemy, the troublemaker . . . only we human beings can do that.” (USA Today)

“Change in humanity must start from individuals. We created this violence, so we can reduce this violence,” His Holiness emphasized, observing that world peace must start with inner peace. (USA Today)

This is why I love being a Buddhist! No hidden agenda...just "dana" in its purest form...

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

Thanks for the update. It's sad, but not altogether surprising. Even Buddha couldn't stop the hatred of others in all circumstances.
