Pain and suffering and experience of sorrow or “dukha” may have a cause according to the Doctrine of ‘Dependent Origination’. Sorrow or dukha is the result of one’s desires for pleasures, power, and continued existence. In case of Tibetan people experience of pain and suffering is direct consequence of military occupation and foreign conquest of their Land. Historically, Tibetans never experienced foreign domination and direct interference in their daily lives until Red China invaded Tibet in 1950. Before intervention by Red China, Tibetans had always enjoyed freedom as a natural right.

When man recognizes pain, suffering and sorrow in the lives of others, man experiences spontaneous arousal of feelings of compassion which is called in Sanskrit language as ‘Karuna’, ‘Krupa’, or ‘Daya’. If pain and sorrow are part of human existence, compassion is innate to human nature. The instinctive response of compassion acts like a physical force, power, or energy for it can uplift man from sorrow. I am seeking application of this force of compassion not only to uplift Tibetans from pain, and misery but also to help Red China to get out of Tibet without pain and suffering.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama is to give a public talk at The O2 in London on 19 September 2015.
Organised by the Tibet House Trust, the talk, entitled ‘Compassion: the Foundation of Well-Being’, will begin at 1pm and will be followed by a Q&A session chaired by psychologist Daniel Goleman.

The Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and religious leader had celebrated his 80th birthday with an appearance at Glastonbury Festival in June.

​His Holiness released a statement ahead of his 10-day visit to the UK, in which he said:
“My life is dedicated to the service of all sentient beings, and in particular I try to help my fellow human beings in whatever way I can.
“What unites all sentient beings is that we all naturally seek happiness and try to avoid suffering. Therefore, we have a collective responsibility to try to bring about the well-being and happiness of all living beings and help them overcome their suffering.

“This is the basis of hope on which I make an appeal that we all work enthusiastically to promote ethical values imbued with love and compassion and that we do our best to reduce, if not eliminate, the conflicts and violence that currently beset many parts of the world.”

Rebecca Kane Burton, general manager of The O2, said: “We are honoured that His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be making his public address. The Dalai Lama has visited Britain many times over the years but this is the first time he will address the public at the world’s most popular music and entertainment venue. We know it will be an inspiring and enlightening day.”

The talk at The O2 is the main public event of the Dalai Lama’s visit to the UK.
