Universal Responsibility and World Peace

Dalai Lama and a child who appears to be sad, embracing

I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. 

Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself, one’s own family or nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. 

Universal responsibility is the key to human survival.  It is the best foundation for world peace.
