Grrreat, now let him put his money where his mouth is. No "Ocean of Wisdom" at the head of the Tibetan Buddhists, Tenzyn Gyatso is just one of the many Tibetans fleeing from the Chinese. No celebrety status, no international appeal, no fundraising for the Tibetan cause. Just plain old Tenzyn trying to make a living, washing dishes in a curry-house in New Delhi.
No more Tibetans monks, Lama's etc teaching the fine points of their philosophy to an western audience. Instead young Tibetans studying engeneering, economy and western (logic based) philosophy at American and European Universities.
OK Tenzyn, I'll be glad to help. Just send me you qualifications and I'll check the local newspapers to find you a job.
I like this quote very much since the first time I see it. It's vastly more enlightened than most of the things out there. Can't you see that the root of this quote is about individual, about benevolence, and about harmony between reason and emotion?
Funny, I was just thinking yesterday about how if Toohey suddenly displayed a genuine virtue, Roark would not be angered but rather pleasantly surprised, since he hadn't invested any energy in hating the former.
