Dalai Lama

Geburtstag: 6. Juli 1935
Andere Namen: Tendzin Gyatsho, 14. dalajláma, Tändzin Gjamccho

Tenzin Gyatso ist der 14. Dalai Lama.

Er ist buddhistischer Mönch, gilt als Linienhalter der Gelbmützen-Schule des tibetischen Buddhismus und befürwortet die Rime-Bewegung. Ab seiner Inthronisierung war er, wie alle Dalai Lamas zuvor, Oberhaupt der tibetischen Regierung. Aus diesem Amt zog er sich 2011 zurück, um seiner Funktion als ein geistliches Oberhaupt der Gelbmützen-Schule den eindeutigen Vorzug zu geben.

1989 wurde er mit dem Friedensnobelpreis ausgezeichnet.

Formelle Bezeichnung ist, in Anlehnung an die Anrede vergleichbarer religiöser Würdenträger, auf Deutsch Seine Heiligkeit bzw. bei direkter Anrede Eure Heiligkeit, Tibeter nennen ihn Kundün oder Gyelwa Rinpoche.

„Wenn wir also gut zu sterben wünschen, müssen wir lernen, gut zu leben: Wenn wir auf einen friedvollen Tod hoffen, dann müssen wir in unserem Geist und in unserer Lebensführung den Frieden kultivieren.“

„As a result of more contact with people from other traditions, as time passes I have firmed my conviction that all religions can work together despite fundamental differences in philosophy.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

"The Nobel Evening Address" p. 115.
The Dalai Lama: A Policy of Kindness (1990)
Kontext: As a result of more contact with people from other traditions, as time passes I have firmed my conviction that all religions can work together despite fundamental differences in philosophy. Every religion aims at serving humanity. Therefore, it is possible for the various religions to work together to serve humanity and contribute to world peace. So, during these last few years, at every opportunity I try to develop closer relations with other religions.

„True peace with oneself and with the world around us can only be achieved through the development of mental peace.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

Nobel lecture (1989)
Kontext: Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free. True peace with oneself and with the world around us can only be achieved through the development of mental peace.

„Buddhism does not accept a theory of God, or a creator. According to Buddhism, one's own actions are the creator, ultimately.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

"The Nobel Evening Address" p. 115.
The Dalai Lama: A Policy of Kindness (1990)
Kontext: Buddhism does not accept a theory of God, or a creator. According to Buddhism, one's own actions are the creator, ultimately. Some people say that, from a certain angle, Buddhism is not a religion but rather a science of mind. Religion has much involvement with faith. Sometimes it seems that there is quite a distance between a way of thinking based on faith and one entirely based on experiment, remaining skeptical. Unless you find something through investigation, you do not want to accept it as fact. From one viewpoint, Buddhism is a religion, from another viewpoint Buddhism is a science of mind and not a religion. Buddhism can be a bridge between these two sides. Therefore, with this conviction I try to have closer ties with scientists, mainly in the fields of cosmology, psychology, neurobiology and physics. In these fields there are insights to share, and to a certain extent we can work together.

„The Great Vehicle path requires the vast motivation of a Bodhisattva, who, not seeking just his or her welfare, takes on the burden of bringing about the welfare of all sentient beings.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

The Dalai Lama at Harvard: Lectures on the Buddhist Path to Peace (1988) by Jeffrey Hopkins.
Kontext: What is the Great Vehicle? What is the mode of procedure of the Bodhisattva path? We begin with the topic of the altruistic intention to achieve enlightenment in which one values others more than oneself. The Great Vehicle path requires the vast motivation of a Bodhisattva, who, not seeking just his or her welfare, takes on the burden of bringing about the welfare of all sentient beings. When a person generate this attitude, they enter within the Great Vehicle, and as long as it has not been generated, one cannot be counted among those of the Great Vehicle. This attitude really has great power; it, of course, is helpful for people practicing religion, but it also is helpful for those who are just concerned with the affairs of this lifetime. The root of happiness is altruism — the wish to be of service to others.

„I agree with and believe in the Communist ideology which seeks the well being of human beings in general and the proletariat in particular, and in Lenin's policy of the equality of nationalities.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

Letter to Deng Xiaoping (1981)
Kontext: I agree with and believe in the Communist ideology which seeks the well being of human beings in general and the proletariat in particular, and in Lenin's policy of the equality of nationalities. Similarly, I was pleased with the discussions I had with Chairman Mao on ideology and the policy towards nationalities.
If that same ideology and policy were implemented it would have brought much admiration and happiness. However, if one is to make a general comment on the developments during the past two decades, there has been a lapse in economic and educational progress, the basis of human happiness. Moreover, on account of the hardships caused by the unbearable disruptions, there has been a loss of trust between the Party and the masses, between the officials and the masses, among the officials themselves, and also among the masses themselves.
By deceiving one another through false assumptions and misrepresentations there has been, in reality, a great lapse and delay in achieving the real goals.

„Compassion without attachment is possible.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

The Compassionate Life (2001), Ch. 2 "How to Develop Compassion" p. 21
Kontext: Compassion without attachment is possible. Therefore, we need to clarify the distinctions between compassion and attachment. True compassion is not just an emotional response but a firm commitment founded on reason. Therefore, a truly compassionate attitude towards others does not change even if they behave negatively. Genuine compassion is based not on our own projections and expectations, but rather on the needs of the other...

„Bodhicitta is the medicine which revives and gives life to every sentient being who even hears of it.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

The Path to Tranquility: Daily Wisdom (1998) edited by Renuka Singh
Kontext: Bodhicitta is the medicine which revives and gives life to every sentient being who even hears of it. When you engage in fulfilling the needs of others, your own needs are fulfilled as a by-product.

„Today, we are truly a global family. What happens in one part of the world may affect us all.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

Nobel lecture (1989)
Kontext: Today, we are truly a global family. What happens in one part of the world may affect us all. This, of course, is not only true of the negative things that happen, but is equally valid for the positive developments. We not only know what happens elsewhere, thanks to the extraordinary modern communications technology. We are also directly affected by events that occur far away.

„To study Buddhism and then use it as a weapon in order to criticize others' theories or ideologies is wrong. The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso

"A Talk to Western Buddhists" p. 87.
The Dalai Lama: A Policy of Kindness (1990)
Kontext: To study Buddhism and then use it as a weapon in order to criticize others' theories or ideologies is wrong. The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others. Rather, we must criticize ourselves. How much am I doing about my anger? About my attachment, about my hatred, about my pride, my jealousy? These are the things which we must check in daily life with the knowledge of the Buddhist teachings.
