His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama graced the occasion as the Chief Guest and delivered the Convocation Address. He said “You’re all my brothers and sisters” addressing the students and the faculty members present. “7 billion people in the world are brothers and sisters to each other. We all share a common trait of compassion. However, unfortunately, the current education system takes us away from that. It pushes us towards a materialistic society which in turn pushes us towards desire and anger. As modern Indian students, you need to embrace the ancient Indian traditions and ideas of Karuna (Compassion), Vimansa, Atma (Soul) and Anatma (Selflessness). Your Indian tradition had the idea of inner peace and consciousness much before the world did. You should embrace that along with your modern education, it’ll be a rediscovery of sorts, a renaissance of a kind.” added His Holiness The Dalai Lama.
