Pope Francis, Dalai Lama seek global effort for peace

Rome: Pope Francis I and the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the XIV Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, Friday expressed their hopes for achieving world peace and encouraged humanity to resolve its conflicts through a vision of global brotherhood.

At Friday's opening ceremony of the XIV World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, Pope Francis welcomed the fact that the event was being held in Rome and said that at the heart of all men and women, there is a desire to live a full life in peace.

He thanked the summit's participants, including 12 Nobel Peace laureates and 12 related organisations, for their work promoting peace and brotherhood, and for their efforts attempting to find solutions to the conflicts of our time.

He also mentioned the late South African president Nelson Mandela, in whose honour this summit is being held, praising his legacy of non-violence that continues to inspire the world.

In his speech, the Dalai Lama emphasised that the world needed education in order to further its development and create a happy and peaceful atmosphere.

The education system needed to understand human emotions, think about the community and distance itself from selfishness, which contravenes humanity, he said while addressing the audience of scientists, educators and psychologists.
