Lhasa [Tibet], August 11 (ANI): The 14th Dalai Lama’s idea of Universal Responsibility is that of a global responsibility that every human being should carry within and it is the biggest contribution of Tibetan culture to the world today, said Hollywood actor Richard Gere, a special guest at the 87th birthday celebrations of Dalai Lama at the seat of Tibetan government-in-exile in India, earlier this month.
“It’s important to the world, important to the universe, what the Tibetans have been able to achieve in promoting this ideal of a Bodhisattva, and a sense of universal responsibility”, remarked Gere, as per a Tibet Rights Collective report.
He believes that it is this idea of global accountability that is the biggest contribution of Tibetan culture to the world today and adds that humanity can benefit from such values derived from Tibetan culture.
According to Gere, it is the most important value/ lesson the rest of the world can learn from His Holiness and Tibetan culture. This can be achieved by understanding the deep sense of interconnectedness and responsibility for each other that saturates Tibetan Buddhism and culture.
