Dalai Lama Inaugurates World Meet for Peace and Harmony in Delhi
His Holiness was invited to speak at the end. He greeted his spiritual brothers and sisters and began by comparing the numbers of followers of the various traditions in the world.
It was agreed that probably Christianity has the largest number of devotees, followed by Islam and Hinduism, but His Holiness noted that while Zoroastrians may now be one of the smallest religious communities in the world they exercise their freedom to worship in India without fear. In a world of 7 billion human beings with different ways of life these different traditions are necessary for humanity.
Realistically speaking we need these different approaches to achieve inner peace and peace in the community. Violence and war persist in many places and prayer seems insufficient to stop it. What we need to do is to take action. He also advised that if religious teaching remains in a book that we only read occasionally, while we lead our lives in another direction, there is something wrong and it does not serve much purpose.Initiated Devotees Meet 2018 -- Address by Swami Shantatmananda -- Ramakrishna Mission Delhi
