Creation of an International Buddhist Zone
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, President of the Council of Buddhist Leaders of the World, organised by the Maha Bodhi Society of India, recently praised on-going efforts to establish an International Buddhist Zone. In his declaration to the Buddhist Leaders from 15 different countries, in Sarnath, he also referred to the necessity of developing harmony between the great religions of the world. The promotion of harmony and better understanding between the different religious traditions is one of what His Holiness often calls the Three Principal Commitments of his life. The other two commitments are to serve humanity by encouraging the development of inner qualities, and to serve the interests of the Tibetan people.
