“There is an urgent need for India’s traditions of non-violence and compassion in today’s world, which is still riven by fighting and killing, sometimes even in the name of religion. We have the potential from birth to develop inner values like compassion that yield peace of mind,” Dalai Lama tweeted.

The 14th Dalai Lama has repeatedly called on the world to adopt India’s knowledge to achieve world peace.
