His Holiness on
What We Human Beings Really Are

By Olivier Adam, 2012.
In this issue


We have to consider what we human beings really are. We are not like machine-made objects. If we are merely mechanical entities, then machines themselves could alleviate all of our sufferings and fulfill our needs. However, since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. Instead, we should consider our origins and nature to discover what we require.

- His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
