Ahmedabad, Jan 19 (UNI) Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama today exhorted the youth to spread Mahatma Gandhi's message of non-violence across the world.
Delivering a lecture on ''World Peace'' at Gujarat Vidyapeeth an academic institution founded by Mahatma Gandhi, here he said that Gandhiji's message of non-violence has become more relevant to modern world than ever before. Even present education system needs to be put on a Gandhian path, he added.
The Dalai Lama was in the city for the Tibetan festival organised by the Darpan Academy and Kanoria Art Gallery.
He said, ''Though I never met Mahatma Gandhi, I am greatly impressed by his thought. I am his student.'' Non-violence is a political reality. It is also a message of religious tolerance.
He said Hindu and Buddhist religions are like twin brothers and the two have much things in common. Buddhism has endorsed many ancient practices of Hindus like yoga and samadhi, he noted.
