On Earth Day What the Dalai Lama Might Say

"Every human should have the idea of taking care of the
environment, of nature, of water. So using too much or wasting
water should have some kind of feeling or sense of concern.
Some sort of responsibility and with that, a sense of discipline."

- The 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

Or here is another quote by His Holiness:

"Interdependence is a fundamental law
of nature. Many of the smallest insects are
social beings who, without any religion,
law or education, survive by mutual cooperation
based on an innate recognition of
their interconnectedness."

Here is my challenge to you. Lets see how many
Dalai Lama quotes we can accumulate as of Earth Day.
Simply add any related quote you find in the
comments. Thanks for participating!

Tenzin Tseten was born May 14, 2001 and was recognized
as a reincarnation by HH the Dalai Lama in 2006. The

Cool Vermont Action!

Give diplomatic recognition to Tibet: US senate

7 Apr 2009

WASHINGTON: An American state Senate has adopted a resolution asking the Obama Administration and the US Congress to give "diplomatic

recognition" to Tibet and take "forceful" action to end "repression" of human rights by China in the Himalayan region.

Passed by the Vermont state Senate, the resolution called on the US Congress and the international community to treat the plight of the Tibetan people as an "urgent matter of highest priority."

The resolution adopted last week sought recognition of the Tibetan political autonomy and also urged the US Congress and the Obama Administration to ask China to sincerely negotiate with the representatives of the Dalai Lama to solve the Tibet Problem.

Condemning the continuing "repression" of the Tibetan people, the Vermont state Senate expressed its solidarity with the individuals who participated in the anti-China protests that occurred around the world on March 10.

The resolution emphasised that the people of Tibet "lived in peace and harmony for centuries" and that the "army of the People's Republic of China illegally invaded" the peaceful Himalayan region.

Alleging the Tibetans have been deprived of any right to self-determination, the resolution said "it is now nearly impossible" for the people of Tibet to continue their "distinctive cultural practices and religious observances."

The resolution also highlighted those Tibetans who were killed, and those who remained missing or were in prison in the aftermath of China's crackdown on Tibetans in March 2008.
