Sao Paulo, Brazil, 15 September 2011 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama arrived in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, three hours later than his scheduled plan of arrival, at 12:30pmdue to long flight delay from Buenos Aires.

From the airport, His Holiness left straight by motorcade to the World Trade Center theater, a venue for His Holiness’ address to business and industrial leaders of Brazil. As he entered theConvention Center of the World Trade Center on his way to the theater, he was greeted by a large number of cameramen. At the theater, he was received by Dr. Cristiane Bomeny, an industrialist and daughter of the family which owns World Trade Center in Sao Paulo, Dr. Ozires Silva, a Brazil’s pioneer industrialist, Mr. Fernando Levy, President of the Business Forum of Brazil, and Mr. Affif Domingos, Vice Governor of the State of Sao Paulo.

In his address to the Brazilian industrialists and business leaders, HisHoliness said that 20th century had witnessed too much bloodshed and millions of people had lost their lives. Therefore, he said, we cannot afford to repeat that history in the 21st century. This century, he said, must be a century of dialogue. He added that no matter how much we try, problems will still remain and will remain as a part of our life. However, he said, the important thing is that we must resolve these differences and problems through dialogue. The use of force and violence, he said, is outdated.

One of the sources of problems, he said, is a huge gap between rich and poor everywhere. Therefore, he said, the privileged people, particularly the business leaders, should shoulder more responsibility to help the poor by investing in the fields of education, health and other social sectors. He also said that natural resources are not infinite and therefore efforts must be made to have more sustainable growth with adequate attention being made to the ecology. He said that industrial and business leaders must be visionary so that every effort they make will ultimately benefit society.

Despite being late for him to depart, His Holiness spoke for nearly two hours at this important forum and also attended to questions from the audience. The audience members, who flew to Sao Paulo from various parts of Brazil, paid a great attention to his talk and listened to His Holiness’ talk very enthusiastically.

Later after the conclusion of the event, he offered scarf to Dr. Ozires Silva and Dr. Christiane Bomeny and thanked them for organizing the event.

This book studies the role of exports in Vietnam’s rapid growth since the country implemented a comprehensive reform (Doimoi) in 1986 to transform itself from a centrally command system to a ‘socialist-oriented market economy’. One central finding is that Vietnam’s growth since Doi-Moi has indeed been export-led as the second-tier NICs of Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, but that many of the characteristics of Vietnam’s exports are different to those of these NICs. Another key finding is that Vietnam’s growth since 2000 has been extensive rather than intensive with high GDP growth driven by rapid growth in factor supplies, especially labour, with low growth in non-agricultural productivity. Such a development path will not support the rate of long-term growth that Vietnam requires to achieve its development objectives, and major policy changes are necessary. This book provides useful insights in Vietnam’s economy and is a good reference for economic researchers, postgraduate

In an age of heightened tensions in Australia and around the world, the message of Buddhism has never been more necessary to bring peace to communities and spiritual refuge to individuals. The challenge is how to elucidate that message so that it speaks clearly in diverse voices to different people with disparate needs and to communicate it so that it cuts through an ever-increasing information clutter. As with other organisations, religious bodies are

There are many religious faiths in the world. Most of the religious faiths started in this world based on some kind of fear. Buddhism however is not based on any concept of fear. It is based on cause and effect. Thus Buddhism is oriented towards the human being and human mind. Why is this? It is because the Teaching of the Buddha very strongly pays attention to human values, nature and the reality of man’s mind. Therefore, we can recognize Buddhism as a man and mind oriented religion. The aim of this noble gift of Dhamma is to elaborate the greatest and magnanimous qualities of supreme mother in order to wish “Oh our great Mother, may you attain the Supreme Bliss of Nibbana”for Late Mdm (Mrs.) Goh Pek Lian who left us 90 days ago.
