Let 21st century be century of dialogue: Dalai Lama

Addressing the HT Leadership Summit in the national capital, the Dali Lama said: “Any conflict cannot be solved by violence. The 21st century should be the century of dialogue.”

“The 20th century was the century of violence...according to some historians, over 200 million people were killed. This immense violence including nuclear weapons failed to bring any permanent peace to the world, so it was (a) waste,” he said.

“Our generation created that century of bloodshed, so it is now our responsibility to tell our children that violence cannot solve the problems,” he added.

The Dalai Lama, in his message, also said that mental peace was the key to happiness.
