Inner Peace, Not Fear
“I am just another human being making my small contribution to serve humanity,” said His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, during his visit to the University of San Diego on April 18, 2012. His presentation titled “Cultivating Peace and Justice” reminded our community that change comes from within. It is within each person to feel the power, the responsibility and the compassion to be a Changemaker. His wise words on hope, happiness and inner peace inspired the 4,700 attendants. His wisdom spread over San Diego during his two-day visit. For some, his message was about optimism and hope that a better world is possible. For others, his words were an inspirational call to action. The Dalai Lama challenged audiences to diffuse anger and negativity to allow space for joy and compassion.
