|Spirituality||DALAI LAMA'S CATHOLIC ENCOUNTER|
To reach peace, we must travel the path of love, compassion, tolerance and patience - and not give in to the overriding human instinct to merely express our desires.
This was the sentiment expressed by the Dalai Lama during a meeting in Florence, Italy, at the weekend with the city's Archbishp Cardinal Silvanio Piovanelli.
The dalai Lama emphasized the importance of promoting inter-religious dialogue and the necessity of seeking peace "generating it, above all, in our hearts. In human society it is natural for oppositions to arise, but if one wants to achieve peace only by expressing desires, he will not succeed in obtaining it."
