"I think India can make some contributions regarding peace. Only in a peace, real peace comes... This country being most populated and democratic is very stable... India can make certain significant contributions regarding a peaceful world."

"To decrease destructive emotions like fear, we must increase positive emotions like love," he said. The Dalai Lama said ancient Indian traditions can make a better world through education.
