(TibetanReview.net, Aug08, 2017) – The Dalai Lama has on Aug 6 questioned China’s employment of fear as a means to create harmony and stability, saying it only leads to lack of trust. “They say they want stability, yet the methods they employ give rise to fear. When there’s fear, there’s no trust and where there’s no trust how can you expect to create harmony or stability?” he said when asked about the ongoing India-China standoff caused by the Doklam issue.

Answering questions on a range of issue in an interview with India’s Times Now television news channel, he has said there had been Chinese troops near India’s border since the so-called liberation of Tibet whereas there had been none before. He said the only realistic approach was one that achieves mutual benefit for the two great and ancient nations which now have to live side by side.

Asked about all the prime ministers of independent India whom he had known, the Dalai Lama has said he knew Nehru well and had sought his advice on several occasions.

Asked to comment on prospects for the world in the next 10-20 years, the Dalai Lama has responded by focusing on education, saying : “Modern education is too one sided at present, it’s too materialistic.

“We need to be able to teach people how to cultivate peace of mind. India is the country that has the potential to successfully combine such modern education with understanding drawn from ancient knowledge of the workings of the mind and emotions. It’s a question of raising awareness.”
