Panel Discussion: Ahimsa in an aggressive world

Panel Discussion: Ahimsa in an aggressive world
Sat 2 Feb 2013

An important tenet of Tibetan Buddhism, Ahimsa means kindness and non-violence toward all living things and above all, to do no harm. But in a world of hostility, we humans still find this task almost impossible, in spite of a wealth of information on cultivating world peace. How then, in the face of unending violence are Tibetans around the globe still able to practice Ahimsa when their country is experiencing one of the darkest periods in Tibetan history under the PRC? This promises to be a challenging and thought-provoking conversation.


Panel members: Greens Senator Larissa Waters, Tenpa Dugdak (Tibetan Activist), Sonam Dagpo (HH the 14th Dalai Lama’s representative in Australasia) and Kyinzom Dhongdue (Australia Tibet Council). Tsewang Thupten (Tibetan student activist) will Moderate the panel discussion.
