This morning (September 14th), His Holiness had an hour long meeting with the Argentinean media. More than 25 media people,representing various media agencies attended the Press Meet. At the press meet, His Holiness told the media that he has come to Argentina atthe invitation of many of his friends and his main purpose of the visitwas to share his two commitments in life—to promote basic human values as a fellow human being and to promote harmony among various religious traditions, as a spiritual person and Buddhist.

His Holiness told the media people that they have an equal responsibility to promote and create awareness about these basic human values and that they should report unbiasly, honestly and truthfully about social problems in order to benefit the larger society. He added that in many parts of the World, corruptions have nowbecome like a new cancer and that those who indulge in such unhealthy practice would not admit. Therefore, he said, it was the media role to investigate and report about these unhealthy practice truthfully and honestly to protect of the interest of a society.

Later His Holiness attended to various questions posed by media persons, ranging from how to incorporate Buddhist values in one’s life to how to adapt Buddhism to different culture settings to democratization of the Tibetan community in exile. While answering the question on democratization of the Tibetan community, His Holiness said that he noticed various flaw in the Tibetan government system when he was child and therefore he made serious attempts to reform the system asearly as in 1952. Later after coming into exile in 1959, he said, he slowly introduced a democratic system in the Tibetan community and then ultimately in 2002, the Tibetans managed to directly elect the chief executive leader (Kalon Tripa).

For ten years since then the Tibetan people have shouldered more responsibility and also people became more politically matured and then he thought it was right time for him to completely devolve his administrative and political authorities to the elected leaders. Not only did he devolve the political authorities, HisHoliness said, he proudly, happily and sincerely ended the temporal leadership of the 400 years old institution of the Dalai Lamas.

Towards the end of his press meet, His Holiness was joined by Argentinean Nobel Peace Laureate, Mr. Perez Esquivel. After the press meet, His Holiness had a private meeting with Mr. Perez Ezquivel. Later,His Holiness had a lunch with Mr. Perez Esquivel and his family members.


His Holiness also met Argentinean Congresswoman Dr/Maria Laura Leguizamon and her family members.


In the afternoon, His Holiness depart for Coliseo Auditorium, where he delivered a lecture on ‘Transforming the Youth for a Better World’ for 2,000 people, where the majority of audience turned out to be young people.

Inhis lecture, His Holiness said that the 21st century belongs to youth, particularly those who are currently in the age group of 30s and lower. In order to make the 21st century more peaceful, more stable, more harmonious, His Holiness said that the responsibility falls on the youngpeople. He warned that education alone might not bring inner peace andhappiness and added that warm-heartedness and compassion are crucial tobring inner peace and happiness. In order to make a significant contribution to the development and progress of a society, he said, an individual youth should take more serious responsibility. He added thatno one from outside was going to come to clean the society and therefore, one must take personal initiative in this direction. His Holiness attended questions posed by people through internet as well as by others who physically attended the lecture.

To give the briefest conclusion that I can think of to the question- 'Do you think that sectarian diversity affects the stability of Buddhism as a whole?', I would have to say, 'Yes' and 'No'. My intention here is not to give a definitive answer, but to give readers 'food for thought', to enable each of us to be responsible and maintain pure intentions, to think for ourselves and develop genuine wisdom and compassion. In the spirit of the Dharma, rather than dwelling on any possible problems, we should mainly focus on solutions to any such problems. With the hope of maintaining the integrity and purity of Buddhism in this world.

Recently I was asked why I love Buddhism. So here are 7 answers for why I love, appreciate, respect, study, practise and share the precious Buddha Dharma. Some answers are short and sweet, while others are in more detail. Of course I could give many more answers and more details, however I've kept it to just 7, for the benefit of easy reading.

Don't live like a fish in Egypt, a frog in a well, or an emu or ostrich with its head in the sand. 1) "Don’t be like a fish in Egypt, and live in denial (the Nile river). LOL." This quote, or joke with meaning, "Don't be like a fish in Egypt, and live in denial (the Nile River)", was something that just popped out of my mouth while teaching a Dharma class a few years ago at a monthly half-day Buddhist youth retreat. The classes were simply entitled 'Q&A' and we would give each class a name that related to the subject matter at the end of the class. The subject matter was determined by the questions asked by the students.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.

May the Merit and virtue,accrued from this work, adorn the Buddhas pureland,
Repay the four great kindnesses above, andrelieve the suffering of those on the three paths below,
may those who see or hear of these efforts generates Bodhi Mind, spend their lives devoted to the Buddha Dharma,
the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
