Comment from UTT:

The following article about the Dalai Lama explains that his purpose in spending so much time in meditation is to promote compassion as the key to making planet earth a better place. This would mean working together with leaders of all religions in a cooperative effort.
This is very interesting in light of the fact that Pastor Rick Warren is holding a conference at Saddleback August 16, 2008 titled "Saddleback Civil Forum on Leadership and Compassion." 
Further, in an article we posted July 21 titled "McCain, Obama to Appear Together at California Megachurch", the following statement was made:
"In conjunction with the Civil Forum event, Warren will convene an interfaith meeting with about 30 Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders to discuss joint projects that can benefit all Americans."
Notice the interesting common denominator with the two plans -  the Dalai Lama's plan and Rick Warren's plan - working together with all religions to benefit all. 
Of course, there is nothing wrong with having compassion for others - however, uniting together with other religions for a common cause to make the world a better place, may well end up being a slippery slope that will someday lead to the union of the religions of the world for the cause of peace that will eventually bring about sudden destruction by the Prince of Peace (Jesus). 
July 27 - Dalai Lama preaches compassion, responsibility
Article: One World Religion
What does compassion and global responsibility really mean to you? To the Dalai Lama, they are inextricably bound to his life, his religion and his future legacy.

For years, people have asked him exactly what he is meditating on. And for years, he has given them a one-word answer that is a primary tenet of Tibetan Buddhism: compassion

Yet the word “compassion” for the Dalai Lama has come to symbolize something more than mere altruism on a local scale, but rather, on a global scale.

He then began to speak about his idea of global responsibility, which, he believes, begins not with  laws or legislation, but with changing our fundamental view of the world.

“Our basic feeling of self and desire for happiness is the same,” he said. “If you look at the world from space, you see one globe. There are no real boundaries. There is too much emphasis on secondary differences — religion, nationality, ethnicity. On a basic level, we are the same. We forget basic humanity.”

This concept of universal similarities among humans, according to the Dalai Lama, must guide how we act on a global level. For example, he proposed the idea of the Americas joining together with a sense of unity, and the same for Europe.

“You have to consider your neighbor not foreign, but part of yourself,”
he explained.

Moreover, the Dalai consistently harped on the importance of dialogue in terms of solving international disputes. This, of course, is a message that he has been preaching to Chinese for more than 50 years in terms of opening a discussion about the future of Tibet. “The 21st century is a century of bloodshed,” he said. “This should be a century of dialogue.”

Fittingly, the Dalai Lama reminded the audience that change, compassion and global responsibility begin with individuals, not just with the Dalai Lama.
