"All the knowledge to us has come from India," Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama today said. Delivering the first convocation address at the Kushabhau
Thakre University of Journalism and Mass Communication here, the Nobel laureate said he had learnt a lot from India and its ancient traditions which stress compassion based on non-violence and religious harmony.
"India is our guru and we are your 'chelas' (disciples). We are not just your chelas but we are also faithfuls.
All the knowledge to us has come from India. "India's greatness lies in the idea of Ahimsa (non- violence). This country is a living example for the world to see how so many religions can exist together for centuries," he said.
He spoke at length about varied topics such as morality, education system and secularism. Speaking on the occasion, Chhattisgarh Governor Shekhar Dutt said Dalai Lama's teachings can help the students touch great heights in their lives.
"Dalai Lama is the symbol of peace, non-violence, wisdom and compassion," he said.
