December 21, 2010 - Gangtok

Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has said that Tibetans are the real holders of Nalanda tradition and are true followers of Indian gurus (teachers).

Inaugurating an International Conference on Science, Spirituality and Education here on Monday, the Dalai Lama said: ""I am always proud to say that we are the real holders of the real Nalanda tradition. Important methods and concepts of Buddhism would always rely on Nalanda masters, so we are the true followers of Nalanda tradition. That is why I always say, we are disciples of India and Indians are our Guru," he added.

He further said that world peace cannot be achieved only through prayers and blessings.

"World peace cannot come through prayers or through blessings; peace must come through our actions. Action is more important than prayers or blessings," he added.

He also said that it is the duty of the people to protect various kinds of faith and religion.

He underlined the importance of spiritualism alongside the knowledge of modern sciences and technologies.
