Quote

 

"It is not enough simply to pray. There are solutions to many of the problems we face; new mechanisms for dialogue need to be created, along with systems of education to inculcate moral values. These must be grounded in the perspective that we all belong to one human family and that together we can take action to address global challenges."
His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, Presidential Distinguished Professor at Emory, Washington Post, June 13, 2016
