Only Love can bring World Peace Small | Large


And when there is nuclear disaster, he recommends the following 2 practices in particular, so take note and gain some experience of them:

1) Wishing Love
2) Taking and Giving

What Geshe la said is so true. More nuclear bombs will only create more enemies and a lot more nuclear bombs. We will self annihilate at the rate that we kill each other. Love is the key to resolving all the current conflicts. It makes so much sense.

What Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso said is so true. "Love is the real nuclear bomb destroying the enemy". Our real enemy are our delusions which prevent us from developing loving kindness towards all beings. It is only through Dharma that we can overcome our delusions - ignorance, desire and hatred - and treat fellow human beings like brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. If we love one another, there is no need for weapons, no need to destroy each other out of hatred and fear. As Venerable said, "other than Dharma, there is no method to solve human problems."

"Without inner peace outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace,but world peace will never be achieved unless we first established peace within our minds.We can send so-called "peacekeeping forces" into areas of conflict,but peace cannot be opposed from the outside with guns.Only by creating peace within our mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world." Kelsang Gyatso

Venerable Kelsang Gyatso in his teachings emphasize the importance of how to fulfill our deepest wishes for peace and how to cultivate a kind heart to help others.

Nuclear bombs and whatever mass weapon of destruction is the creation from our own self-centerness. The only way to eradicate such mindset is by means of educating everyone on love and kindness. If we give an eye for an eye it becomes a vicious cycle of destruction and death of lives. Who has the right give to judge and give the death penalty for civilians? We have become civilisation who threatens each other with killing, kidnapping and blackmailing.

It is always a delight to watch and listen to Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's teachings.  Thank You for sharing this psylotripitaka! 

There are no enemies other than our delusions!  It is not the outer enemies, it is our inner maras that we should overcome! We are lucky that we have Dharma to help us in this. When we understand the nature of our delusions, we can apply the necessary antidotes for their cessation.  For example we practise loving kindness to overcome hatred to achieve world peace.

Only loves brings world peace. So any kind of act be it from secular or spiritual leaders that cause others to divide and plant seeds to differentiate others from self and eventually cause hatred and war on each others are acts against the teachings of the Buddha and even common sense tells us it is true.
Hence, lets propagate love and love our enemies even if they caused tremendous pain to us and our community. If that can be achieved, then the world is a better place and we have the conditions for the practices for future lives and others.

I love this video by Geshe-la (I love all his videos actually, and Karmapa's too (Thaye Dorje Karmapa).  They are both the source of all attainments:).
  Geshe-la makes such virtuously intelligent points; it is very stupid we keep killing each other--- humans to other humans.... it would be helpful if everyone would think about this, like the U.N. should have a 10 minute meditation lead by Geshe-la, and then we will have a lot more Buddhas and more chance at peace:).

Geshe-la elucidates his teaching with so much calmness and wisdom. If only everyone in the world can learn and practice this form of wisdom and compassion onto others,then maybe we will not have such a messed up world !

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is a real mahasiddha. His words and tone is filled with so much compassion and love. All his books are great. Geshe-la makes so much sense in his teachings, that the wisdom contained therein is not refutable. If men keep creating war with men, it will be a never ending cycle, until everyone is wiped out and destroyed. How can one use weapons to hurt one another of the same species? Due to the 3 poisons that consumes our intellect, we act because we are controlled by our emotions and feelings.

I do not think a spirit worshipper would be preaching such teachings aligned with the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni.

This is a mind blowing teaching! If Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is a spirit worshipper, how can he be so wise and compassionate like Buddha Saykamuni?

I know.  I also think, like if the DL is the Buddha of compassion, then why does he exibit no compassion?  Why are his arguments completely lacking in any form of cohesive logic?  I must conclude:  DL is no Buddha or would he be (several people on these forums are REALLY into pure view arguments of DL behavior) then like to me he is saying, I may be a Buddha but am not acting like one; therefore I might not speak like one.  Therefore, do not take as advise anything that comes from my mouth.

I totally agree that world peace can only be achieved through peaceful methods. Love and compassion are the keys to resolve any disputes and violence. Look that the current war in the Middle East. It shows how people have degenerated. Killing of children and the innocent in the name of God is twisted and horrific. Which God would support killing in the first place? Isn't God teaching us to be compassionate, forgiving, loving and kind to each other? Why do we use God to promote more sufferings and creating hell on Earth?

Mahasiddha Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is so true in his advise. Wishing love, giving and taking are what we need to practise. Otherwise, we will self annihilate.

I agree with what Mahasiddha Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche said. Love and compassion can help destroy our enemies and delusion and bring peace, inner and outer.
If we can achieve this than the world will be a better and peaceful place.
