His Holiness the XVIIth Karmapa's Message to the Next Generation




Over the last decades, a lot of changes took place in the world. These changes, fostered by material and technological developments will continue to take place. However, what we must think about is whether we will be able to gain genuine happiness through this material development or not. Likewise, it is not impossible that in the future, we might face great and unbearable mental burdens and a sense of chaos because we have made ourselves so dependent on technology. Therefore, instead of working just for material development the next generation of young people should find means and methods for gaining inner peace because what we desire is mental happiness and peace. I think it is very important for us to think deeply about that.
