The spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people, Dalai Lama, delivered a New Year’s message emphasizing the importance of unity in leading a meaningful life and creating a better world. He started his New Year message by expressing his gratitude towards people around the globe who sent him New Year’s wishes.
Quoting Dalai Lama “Despite the many challenges that we are facing today, I feel optimistic that with a growing appreciation of how interconnected we all are in the oneness of humanity, we can all work to lead more meaningful lives and create a better world.”
According to the Dalai Lama ” As human beings, we share a common wish to be happy and free from pain. We are social animals who depend on others to survive. Therefore, as I often say, we should work for the benefit of others. If we cannot help them, we should at least make sure we do no harm. I have found that helping others is the best way of ensuring happiness and calm for ourselves”.
Dalai Lama “firmly believes that we can find peace in the world only when we find peace within. Every human being has the potential to cultivate inner peace, and by so doing to contribute to the peace of our global community”.
Now we approach 2024 from the perspective of the Dalai Lama, ” We must try to cultivate compassion and inner peace, regardless of our nationality or religion, we can contribute to the well-being and happiness of all mankind. If the last century was the century of violence, it is our responsibility to make this century the century of dialogue”.
Once again extending a warm greeting to all of us, his holiness hopes that we all enjoy an auspicious beginning to the new year in 2024.
As we step into 2024, let us take to heart the Dalai Lama’s message, to cultivate compassion and inner peace. May this year be filled with promising beginnings, and may we collectively contribute to the well-being and happiness of the global community.
Hiddenmantra extends warm wishes for a joyful and prosperous New Year, which filled with moments of happiness and success. May this year bring you abundance, good health, and the fulfilment of your dreams.
