Dalai Lama Urges Youth to Study English and See the World

The Dalai Lama urged Japanese youth to study English and see the world at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan on Saturday. He said, “…Go (to the) outside world! To Arabia, Africa, Latin America…You can make many contributions.”

The Tibetan spiritual leader made the remarks when he touched on the problem of the increasing number of youth committing suicide, due to too much stress and feeling lonely. People can create a circle of support in many places by using English. The Dalai Lama explained, “My purpose is to promote a message of compassion and no violence. There’s no political purpose.”
