Dalai Lama for Peace

May 20, 2011

Newark, N.J. – On Friday, May 13, the Dalai Lama – along with a diverse group of speakers ranging from a former member of the Bloods street gang to to Jody Williams, a peace activist from Brattleboro, VT – spoke on the topic of working for peace. With a crowd over 1,000 people, the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader commenced the three-day Newark Peace Education Summit by enlightening the audience that finding inner peace is a pivotal precondition to making positive change in the world.

The Dalai Lama said, “The change in human society, the initiative, must start with the individual… I really feel America is the real champion of democracy and freedom, so America has a moral responsibility.”

He also added that people change systems, not the other way around, “The world belongs to over 6 billion human beings, not governments or religious leaders,” he said. “The world belongs to people.”
