His Holiness joins classes at Emory university/ENG


ALTANTA, Georgia: His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Thursday joined two classes in the Emory University.

The first was a Business studies class in which he told the students: “I know business and money are important, but how to make money I have no idea. However, for any human profession to be constructive requires a good motivation. It needs transparency that leads to trust, which is essential for co-operation.”

He also remarked that competition can be thought of as of two types. One which aims to obstruct and stifle rivals tends to be negative. The other that creates an energy of benefit to all participants is helpful.

The second class he visited consisted of students who had studied his books on secular ethics. When a student asked his advice for someone with spiritual inclinations but little interest in established religion, he replied:

“This is exactly the spirit of secular ethics. As you know, it is not something separate from our spiritual traditions. But if you want to take it further, you could add some meditation, both analytical meditation which is similar to the discussions you have in this class and single-pointed meditation that serves to sharpen your awareness. Every morning you could do some yoga and follow it with single-pointed meditation. That might be productive.”

At the end His Holiness was asked to speak about the Pope in relation to secular ethics. He responded that John Paul II was a wonderful man, a great spiritual leader, who he had asked whether ethics should necessarily be grounded in religion. The Pope remained silent, but one of his Cardinals said, “Yes.” Pope Benedict on the other hand said, “…. faith and reason must go together”. With regard to Pope Francis, His Holiness said he seems very realistic and practical, but he has not yet met him; he hopes to do so in the coming year.
