Last quote about Buddhism

Stephen Batchelor
Once you enter into the hermetic world of Tibetan Buddhism, you somehow burn your bridges to Western rationality. You enter a world that appears to be entirely consistent internally; everything makes sense; the structures of power seem to be in the service of these high ideals of enlightenment, and the relationship with the guru is the key element in your capacity to follow this path in the most effective way.feedback

This is the rule of the Buddha. Except I use a smartphone and Facebook. This is modern monk technology.feedback

Chris Patten

On the whole, we have continued to operate under the delusion that unless you bow low enough you will never do any business in China. I think we should be much firmer in standing up to China on some of these issues. Why should the Chinese tell … a western political leader whether or not he or she can meet the Dalai Lama? … Why should anybody in China be allowed to scold us for saying too much about turning atolls and reefs in the South China Sea into military bases?feedback

Adam Grant

Combine warm-heartedness and this brilliant brain. Combine these two. Then, firstly, individuals themselves [will] be happier, more calm, more relaxed. And then, others also. You see, that kind of attitude automatically bring more friends.feedback

Guang Shan

I don't want to promote Buddhism! I only promote Chinese culture to cleanse humanity.feedback

Katy Perry

I mean, I'm not Buddha–things irritate me. I don't know. Like, maybe I don't agree with everything she does and she doesn't agree with everything I do, but I just really truly want to come together in a place of love and forgiveness and understanding and compassion. All I need to say to her is I love her and God bless her on her journey.feedback

Taylor Swift

I said that but, I mean, I'm not Buddha – things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That's so messed up!feedback

Katy Perry

I'm not Buddha – things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [their respective fan groups]. That's so messed up! I can't speak for him, but he didn't know [who 'Bad Blood' was about]. I'm not supposed to tell him what he can and can't do. I'm very fair; I'm super-duper fair and I'm not one of those people who's like, You can't do that because I don't like that person. Just, like, you do you, make your own choices.feedback

Katy Perry

Well, [Late Late Show host] James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe. No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two, and the truth. I mean, I'm not Buddha – things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That's so messed up!feedback

Lobsang Sangay

Donald Trump ... has been to all three major sacred places of three major traditions. So what is left is Buddhism and his holiness the Dalai Lama is the most prominent Buddhist leaders in the world. If he can meet with all leaders of major traditions, I think it's just logical that he meet with the most prominent Buddhist leader. We are Tibetans. We are perennially optimistic.feedback

Perry Link

The effect of that surveillance is less that certain people are caught and punished and more that virtually all Chinese students know they – could – be reported and, therefore, watch what they say in public fora.feedback

Leo Yao

So it's true that we have connections with the consulate, but it's not the kind of relations that many people say we have.feedback

Jeffrey Henderson

I basically don't think that any student organizations that are controlled by their government – which clearly the C.S.S.A. is – should have a presence on foreign university campuses.feedback

Terry Zhou

We make good grades. We don't make trouble. We pay a lot. What is the motivation?feedback

Frank Tian Xie

I came to the U.S. and thought, Wow, great, I'm in a free country, now I hope that everything is cool and happy. But I found out that the government extended their control to even Chinese students in America.feedback

Leo Yao

Rebranding is very important so we won't take this personally, maybe.feedback

Korakrit Arunanondchai

Instead of the video being the final product, I think of a film more as a sculpture. I'm from Thailand, and I'm always thinking about Buddhism. When you talk about life, it's always about transforming.feedback

Robert M. Pirsig

The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain or in the petals of a flower.feedback

Pema Khandu

Let me get this straight. China has no business telling us what to do and what not to do, because it is not our next-door neighbor.feedback

Dalai Lama

That might also happen. They will decide whether the tradition continues or not. However, I am committed to promote and preserve Tibetan culture and ecology.feedback

Kiren Rijiju

Arunachal Pradesh is an inseparable part of India, and China should not object to his (the Dalai Lama) visit and interfere in India's internal affairs.feedback

Robert J. Barnett

This is a way of getting under the skin of the Chinese, of probing them, and reminding them that they have no control over where the next reincarnation occurs. He doesn't have to do anything except exist and be his usual beaming self to embarrass the Chinese. He will be right on the border, he will be a complete free person, he will be only meters away from Chinese territory, but they cannot do anything about it.feedback

Sang Phuntsok

That is the dream of many people here, that the next Dalai Lama should be born in Tawang.feedback

Brahma Chellaney

He is a wise Lama, and he is thinking far ahead, as he always has. He is not given to sentimental reasoning. There is nothing about his trip to Arunachal Pradesh that is sentimental in its nature.feedback

Tsering Tashi

I wish that the reincarnation of the next Dalai Lama happens in Tawang. That's all I can say.feedback

Lobsang Khum

We have been preparing for the last two months. Everybody wants to see him, get his blessings, touch his feet. For us, the Dalai Lama is more important than our lives.feedback

Dalai Lama

Whenever I come to the northeast of India, it feels like a reunion with people here. When I visit, I am reminded of the freedom that I had experienced for the first time.feedback

Shi Huichang

Xi did a great service for Buddhism. He showed respect. I'm not sure he was a believer but he respected it. He knew more about it than most people.feedback

Alex Sanderson

It's not just his technical improvements, he's delved quite deep into mental aspects and emotional aspects of the game. He's very harsh on other people because he's so harsh on himself. But he knows now that not everyone, like him, wants the stick. He's studied Buddhism as well, in terms of mindfulness and staying in the moment, so he can black box mistakes, or even things that have gone well, and just think about the job at hand.feedback

Geng Shuang

The Dalai Lama's comments in the interview perhaps appeared humorous and funny, but these words are all lies that do not accord with the facts. We often say that the 14th Dalai Lama is a political exile who wears religious clothing to engage in anti-China separatist activities. Now it seems he is an actor, who is very good at performing, and very deceptively.feedback

Geng Shuang

The invitation to the Dalai Lama by the Indian side to the contested area between China and India will inflict severe damage on the China-India relationship and peace and stability in the China-India border area.feedback

Lobsang Sangay

His father has a good track record on the issue of Tibet and I hope the son will continue the same legacy.feedback

Lobsang Sangay

The Canadian government is on very high and moral ground and they can say with confidence and share the Canadian experience, and say 'This is how we treat our people, how we solve the issue.feedback

Dalai Lama

We are not seeking independence. History is history. We are very much impressed [by] the spirit of the European union – independent sort of sovereign states – important but not so important.feedback

Dalai Lama

There is hope and I think it is important that the outside world, particularly like the EU, I think with sincere motivation to in order to help People's Republic of China with some sort of constructive criticism, is sometimes necessary.feedback

Lee Chien-chu

I have created a series about Buddha hands, a series about architecture, one about traditional (Chinese) weapons and one about the alphabet. Those are all artworks that I like very much.feedback

Hong Lei

We hope that people from the international community can be fully aware of his true colors and nature. The purpose of his visits and activities in other countries is just to promote his proposal for Tibetan independence.feedback

Lu Kang

If the United States plans this meeting, it will send the wrong signal to Tibet independence and separatist forces and harm China-U.S. mutual trust and cooperation.feedback

Lu Kang

China's Foreign Ministry has launched solemn representations with the US side, expressing our firm opposition to such an arrangement. If such meeting goes through, it will send a wrong signal to the separatist forces seeking Tibet independence and it will damage mutual trust and cooperation.feedback

Hong Lei

We hope that people from the international community can be fully aware of his true colours and nature.feedback

P.D. Mukherji

Even if China tries to select the next Dalai Lama, the Tibetans will continue to have an elected leader who is outside the Communist Party's grip.feedback

Lu Kang

You must be quite clear about the position of Chinese government, that we have never recognised this so-called government-in-exile. We also hope that countries around the world, especially those that have friendly relations with us will not provide any stage for Tibetan independence separatist activities.feedback

Axel Plathe

The sites that are in these areas are counted by thousands. We of course are mostly concerned by the most emblematic sites: we have been shocked by the aggression against Hatra, which is a World Heritage Site – it's tantamount to aggressing the Pyramids in Egypt or the Birthplace of Buddha in Lumbini in Nepal. So this is really a significant acceleration of destruction. Ashur is on the World Heritage list, the archeological city in Samarra is on the World Heritage list. These are very important sites in Iraq.feedback

Wen Jiabao

We can continue talks with the Dalai Lama. The key lies in the Dalai Lama's sincerity to allow the talks to achieve substantive results.feedback

Giulio Albanese

His Holiness is deeply grateful for the commitment of the summit participants to promoting peace and fraternity among peoples and for their efforts in finding solutions to the conflicts of our day.feedback

Desmond Tutu

This government, or government is worse that the apartheid government….because our government representing me, representing me? It says it will not support Tibetans who are being oppressed viciously by the Chinese. Hey, Mr Zuma, you and your government don't represent me, you represent your own interests.feedback

Kim McSweeney

It's beautiful to see everybody in national dress, coming together in a cultural way, it's always in a spiritual way. And it's wonderful to see other traditions, there are other monks here. I have just met some Cambodian monks and there are Chinese ones as well and all the different nationalities are represented because we all come together with our hearts for Buddha.feedback

Jonathan Holslag

If you (had) a strong common European position endorsed by the European Council, at least, it would be not easier for the Chinese to accept but to deal with. If you compare for instance to the USA there the Dalai Lama too was received by even the American president, it was difficult for China but somehow they learned to live with it.feedback

Toshiaki Komura

Compared to the first film, the story is a lot more dramatic and spectacular, there are a lot of unexpected elements in the second film where the character of the Buddha develops and therefore, in terms of the story, the second part is much richer.feedback

Dalai Lama

We know each other and we have developed some kind of, I think, very close friendship. Therefore something like a reunion of one family, like that. I really feel like that. Naturally he is showing his concern about Tibet and he inquired about the situtation and then accordingly I explained.feedback

Zhang Qingli

We feel very upset by this. This is a brutal interference in China's internal affairs. We express our firm opposition and grave objections.feedback

Charles Freeman

For the Chinese government, the Dalai Lama represents this notion that Tibet can be an independent country, and so meeting with the Dalai Lama suggests support for the political proponent of independence, even though I think here in the US, most politicians and most of the public think of the Dalai Lama as a religious figure, not a political figure of any kind.feedback

David Firestein

The Chinese are obviously never pleased when the US president or other senior US leaders meet with the Dalai Lama. They're never pleased when the United States sells arms to Taiwan, as has recently been announced. But at the same time, I think the American policy makers understand the Chinese concerns, and understand that these kinds of decisions are going to have these kinds of consequences.feedback
