We have to make our own lives peaceful and happy. This is the way to work for peace twenty-four hours a day. If our minds harbor destructive, angry thoughts, any talk of peace is just a joke. It’s merely artificial; there’s no guarantee. The only guarantee is to fertilize our minds with peace and loving kindness towards all; that’s the way we should do it.
This multimedia presentation is based on a talk given by Lama Yeshe in Berkeley, California in 1983. Lama was asked to comment on how to deal with our fear and anxieties about the future in the context of the development of nuclear power and the nuclear arms race between the United States and Soviet Russia. While the situation today may be different on the surface, Lama Yeshe's observations and insights are as just as powerful and relevant today as they were when he first made them.
