“Basic human nature is compassionate and gentle. On that level, the seven billion human beings are the same. We are all brothers and sisters. On the secondary level, yes, there are differences—different races, countries, systems, and religions. There are too many differences. I think all our man-made problems are actually based on this secondary level of difference. But if you go deeper—to the fundamental human level—there is no demarcation, no barrier. We are the same human being. Everybody is born from a mother and grows up needing human affection. All the same!” HH Dalai Lama sharing his profound wisdom and vast compassion.
