    Questions for the Dalai Lama?

    By Jonathan Kaplan, Ph.D.

    Later this week, I am going to a press meeting with the Dalai Lama who is visiting NYC. Most likely, I'll ask him to elaborate on the distinction between urban and rural challenges to mindfulness and compassion, which he discussed at a conference last year. However, I thought that I would see if any UM readers had compelling questions to pose. So, if you could ask the Dalai Lama one question, what would it be?

    Hi Jonathan,

    What a wonderful opportunity! Thank you for extending it to the rest of us.
    The Dalai Lama is well known, amongs many other things, for his relentless battle to preserve the culture of the Tibetian people. In one interview he listed it as his main concern for Tibet.
    Had I one question to ask the Dalai Lama, I would like to understand why he believes the preservation of culture to be so important, in the greater scheme of things, of course.

    Yes, a great opportunity! Thanks Jonathan. I guess if i had one question, it would be to ask him if there were one most important practice, or activity we could do to help heal the violent distressing state of the world at the moment, what would it be? I guess the follow-up to that would be how to maintain one's hope and faith in the face of suffering, war, and intolerance. That is something I ask myself lot.
