Buddhism and culture of peace

His Holiness the Dalai Lama often summarizes Buddhist philosophy in a sentence: “Do good whenever it is possible; if you can’t do good, try to avoid doing evil.” One of the special notions of Buddhism is that the world surrounding us is inseparable from ourselves. So, if we are good to other beings and the environment, we are taking care of our own good. If we do harm to others and to the environment, we are harming ourselves. All beings are connected to each other, all depend of each other.

The Buddhist concept of interdependence also says that we – and everything around us – lack the solidity we deem to have. We assign identities and qualities to each and every thing, including ourselves, from a limited binary standard of liking and disliking, wanting and not wanting.
