The Dalai Lama Blesses the Healing Castle
The Dalai Lama has blessed the Healing Castle.
He has urged, and continues to urge, that we act with compassion and understanding so that we treat the Earth and each other better. With compassion and understanding come right motivation and right action. We need to educate ourselves about the consequences of our behaviors to the planet and human societies. We need to stop acting selfishly and for short-term gain. With selfishness comes a lack of consideration for others, which brings about unnecessary pain and suffering. Just as we can behave selfishly to others, we can behave selfishly to the Earth, of which we are inseparably linked.
At the Healing Castle we believe in protecting and preserving the Earth. We practice recycling and promote a vegetarian diet. We reuse materials as much as we can to prevent waste. We also invite people from all over the world to experience the energy and vibrance of our castle, in order to promote cooperation and a spirit of community.
