22june20103Nagano, Japan: His Holiness the Dalai Lama visited the Saihoji Temple on Monday where he celebrated the opening of an exhibit in the newly built Mandala Hall. The exhibit contains 8 Boddhisattavas, a gilded Amitabha Buddha statue and 30 auspicious symbols. The statue is representative of the co-existence of Tibetan and Japanese Buddhism. This three day event also included teachings from his holiness about finding one's inner Buddha nature. He said, "awareness of one's innate Buddha nature will give self-confidence and provide a key to happy life." Anyone can achieve this if they identify that the cause of all suffering is inner ignorance and delusion.

World Peace Stupa Blessed

Nagano, Japan: His Holiness the Dalai Lama visited and blessed a four decade old Buddhist stupa located in the Saizo Hokyoin Tou temple this morning. Built by four Japanese and Tibetan Buddhists after the war in 1964, the stupa symbolizes World Peace and the riddance of violence and hatred in the world. His Holiness blessed the stupa by first tying a white khata (Tibetan ceremonial scarf) around the monument and then praying. Hosang Kai group member Nakamura Hideksugu was present and said, "I feel a deep spiritual connection with the Tibetan people now that His Holiness has blessed the stupa."

Clear Light = World Unity

Nagano, Japan: The Big Hat Stadium was graced by His Holiness the Dalai Lama Sunday afternoon when he gave a public talk to over 7,000 people titled "Guide to Positive Clear Light." He explained that clear light is a neutral state of mind- closer to accessing positive emotions (love, kindness and compassion) than the negative (stress, anxiety, selfishness). The mind can be overrun by negative emotions that enable it to work with bias and anger. It is only through developing a calm mind that one can find clarity in thought and avoid destructive behaviour. In order to do this, one must understand interdependence-the root of all problems is ignorance and self-centeredness. He went on to explain that this lack of interdependence has led to the current economic global crisis and the Copenhagen Climate Change failure because leaders didn't view problems pertaining to the world as an united issue. He emphasized the importance of recognizing the oneness of humanity. Attendee Iwai Takamoto said the speech "touched me profoundly... I feel like even I can make a difference."
