When asked to comment about Mexicans carrying Tibetan Flag, His Holiness said that in 1954 when he visited China and met with Chairman Mao Tsetung, he was told by Mao that Tibet had its ownflag and Tibetans should use it. So if people complained about displaying Tibetan flag, His Holiness told the crowd, you should tell them that even Chairman Mao had no objection to displaying the flag. AsHis Holiness narrated these words, all the people carrying small Tibetan flag raised the flags in the air.

At the stadium, massive banners reading 'Mexico loves Tibet’ hanged from the awning of the soccer teams' benches and thousands of people were carrying small Tibetan flag drew attention of the media people.

Later when His Holiness concluded his talk andwhen a host of the event delivered his thank you remark, the crowd recited in unison in Spanish a popular longlife prayer for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, which says: “In this land surrounded by mountains of snow; You are the source of all solace and joy; All powerful Chenresig, Tenzin Gyatso; Please remain until samsara ends.”

This was followed by the musicians of the traditional Mexican songs ‘Mariacha’ coming up on the stage and played a very emotional farewell song for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The crowd also joined in singing the song.


Before he left the stage at the stadium, His Holiness had a group photo with the members of the Religious Council of Mexico City as well as with the musicians of the Mexican traditional song.

Every morning when I read the news, there are so many reports on war and destruction happening all over the world. This sometimes leads me to feel overwhelmed, helpless and somewhat guiltyfor the relatively peaceful life I have. How do Itransform these feelings of sadness, anger and helplessness into something a lot more productive and constructive?

Seven Wonders of the Buddhist World | BBC Documentary | with English Subtitles, Over thirty years ago I sat and watched a programme on British television about Tutankhamen. I still remember the frisson - the realisation that the stories I'd heard; of boy-kings dripping in gold; of hidden burial chambers and court intrigue could, sometimes, be true. That BBC documentary was inspirational. I've been fortunate enough to spend my adult life following my own research interests - and delight in being able to share the results with a wider public.

In India in the 6th century BC, Sakyamuni, "a wise man of the Sakya tribe", had been meditating under a tree when, suddenly, he was struck with the comprehension of all things. He became Buddha, meaning the « Illuminated ». His message, based on a pragmatic philosophy, taught how to free oneself from all needs in order to achieve illumination. After the death of the Enlightened One, his disciples – a few monks – began to spread his teachings all over India, from Ceylon to the Himalayan. Fearing man’s penc

Buddhism has taken firm roots in Australia during the last few decades, due in part to people migrating to Australia from various Buddhist cultures and their 2nd generation, who either moved here as children or were born here. It is also due in part to the genuine interest in these precious teachings and way of life shown by Australian's of all backgrounds. Some of whom have deep virtuous roots from practising the Dhamma in previous lives and others who are totally new to the Dhamma, having a strong attraction to the peace, harmony and understanding that results from the Buddhist practises of morality, meditation and wisdom. Therefore it is essential that the Dhamma be taught in the English language, using terminology and expression that can be clearly understood.

Shakyamuni Buddha appeared on the stage of this world with four great noble tasks to perform, namely to open up the treasury of truth, to indicate its meaning, to cause men to apprehend it, and to lead them to it,(1) which can be achieved by the penetrative power of Buddha’s wisdom or vision, i.e., Buddha a, Buddha nature.
