Dharamshala: This morning, a group of Muslim scholars from Malaysia, Sweden and the USA received an audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama at his residence in Dharamshala.

His Holiness had a brief interaction with the scholars where he spoke about the promotion of religious harmony as one of his four principal commitments for a peaceful and compassionate world.

“All religions may have different philosophies but all religions are unifying in the promotion of Karuna (compassion) and Ahimsa (peace)”, said His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Speaking further, His Holiness pointed out the futility of conflict in the name of religion, adding, that acceptance or rejection of faith in a religion is an individual choice.

“Religion is man-made but the essence and the message of all religions is the same, so, there is no reason to create conflict in the name of religion”, added His Holiness.

He further reminded about the special bond shared between the Muslims and Tibetans dating back to the Tibetan empire when the two were major trading partners. His Holiness conveyed that friendship between the two communities remains intact today as well.

“The Tibetan government also recognises the Muslim community with respect,” said His Holiness in conclusion and expressed his delightedness in meeting the Muslim scholars today.
