'Today's youth not proud of Indian culture'

'Today's youth not proud of Indian culture'

The ancient Nalanda University was instrumental in propagating Indian culture and traditions. Even foreigners have special reverence for the erstwhile university, said Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

Dalai Lama who was here to take part in the Jangchup Lamrim Teachings (Buddist research) at Gaden Jangtse Monastery in Camp no 1, was speaking to the mediapersons on Thursday. Today’s young generation is neglecting the Indian culture though foreigners are mesmerised by it.

 Though the current Nalanda University provides varied opportunity for higher studies, youths are not interested in it, he said and also supported Centre’s decision to rejuvenate the university.

Speaking at the Jangchup Lamrim Teachings, the spiritual leader advised Buddhist monks to lead a disciplined life. “Nothing can be achieved if there is no discipline in life,” he added.

Dalai Lama said that one should not get lured by lavish lifestyle and should lead a simple and disciplined life.

Earlier in the day, he visited Gaden Lachi and Drepung Lachi Monasteries and offered prayers. Dalai Lama also inaugurated Mongolian Housing Complex and a meditation hall.
