Nonviolent conflict resolution is urgently needed

Deep trauma, pain, and suffering that has been smoldering under the surface is now expressing itself. After years and centuries of discrimination and injustice against black people, cities all over the world are crying out, “this is enough, black lives matter.” Peaceful work to identify and root out discrimination and prejudice against black people, women, Native Americans, other minorities, and all people and animals is urgently needed. Nonviolent conflict resolution of engaged compassion, mutual respect and understanding, is urgently needed. Dialogue led by the new leadership in November is prescient. April 4, 1968 Robert F. Kennedy announced and eulogized the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Sixty-three days later, RFK was assassinated. HH Dalai Lama will confer Bodhisattva vows on Friday, June 5 from about 9 – 10 a.m. Indian time. Please see for exact timing, and other dialogues this month.
