Dalai Lama Denounces Chapel Hill Murders


In a statement today the Dalai Lama announced to Chinese state radio that

I am aghast at these murders and want the families to know Buddhists deplore this kind of action by a fellow non-believer. This is not the way of Buddhism.

He announced condolences as only the Dalai Lama can and also said

“Although violence and the use of force may appear powerful and decisive, their benefits are short-lived. Violence can never bring a lasting and long term resolution to any problem, because it is unpredictable and for every problem it seems to solve, others are created. On the other hand, truth remains constant and will ultimately prevail.”

In this, Mr Craig Stephen Hicks shares some traits with the religious.


‘Nuff said




At least this is what I imagined
  1. Well I knew murder (the murder of anyone by anyone) was wrong on so many levels way before the Dalai Lama told me so, but yeah, we (we being people in general) really do need to quit murdering each other over religion. Either I missed that day in Sunday school where they taught us God says we should kill those who believe differently than we do or God never said any such thing & some people are putting words in god’s mouth to justify the atrocities they commit.

    well said, we need to understand that lives here can not be replaced, so we must never take away that which we can not give back. Hugs

  2. I love the Dalai Lama
