Robert Thurman: Why the Dalai Lama Matters @ Tibet House in NYC.

Via on Jul 4, 2008

The first few seconds aside (I actually know Ravenna, the American Buddhist songstress), this talk (from Bob’s book tour launch event at Tibet House in New York City approx two weeks ago) offers a preview of our upcomin’ elevision: Free Tibet, and a glimpse into why Columbia Prof. Robert Thurman chose to write “Why the Dalai Lama Matters His Act of Truth As the Solution for China, Tibet and the World.” The book, or rather the author, was just featured in the NY Times Sunday Magazine—elephant journal’s Official Favorite Sunday Morning Bathtub Reading.

    of say, gandhi’s 7 failings,5,pleasure without conscience,science without humanity,knowledge without character,politics without principle, commerce without morality,point to the wrong of killing sentient beings for food. eating animals is the opposite of ahimsa. because animals,like children, are voiceless, because the world fills up every day with their misery terror and agony, not mute, but unheard, because we will never stop killing eachother until we stop killing, animals, i am writing to say, a dali lama can desist, a dali lama knows how.
