Man of Peace Graphic Novel Book Launch Livestream
The great fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet has become the first global Dalai Lama, a prominent transnational leader of all who want to make the dramatic changes actually necessary for life on earth to thrive for centuries to come. Considered the incarnation of the Buddhist savior Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara—archangel of universal compassion—he is believed to appear in many forms, at many different times, whenever and wherever beings suffer.
Representing the plight of his beloved Tibetan people to the world, he has also engaged with all people who suffer oppression and injustice, as recognized in 1989 by his being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. His life is thus an example for the world of an individual who never gives up, speaks truth to power, and returns love and kindness for anger and violence.
Along with many scientists, the Dalai Lama teaches that we need to stop poisoning the environment and change from insatiable consumerism to a sustainable lifestyle; that we need to stop the war culture that uses violence to conquer others, and change our armies into peace corps, resolving conflicts through dialogue and compromise; and that we need to discourage all religious and ideological extremisms and educate all people to better understand one another.
Most importantly, the Dalai Lama walks his talk throughout these pages, as he has throughout his life, and he radiates a powerful hope that we can and will prevail.
