2012_11_11 His Holiness gave a public talk in Okinawa

His Holiness gave a public talk on 'The strength to overcome difficulties' at the Kenritsu Budo hall. The talk was organised by Dr Nagamunei and group. More than 5,000 people came to attend the talk.

Addressing the public, His Holiness said "a calm mind is very important for a peaceful and happy life. Physical and material comfort doesn't necessarily guarantee 100% happiness".

His Holiness also said that neuro scientists in America has found out through an experiment that after practicing compassion, stress and blood pressures of people are reduced. So, a healthy mind is very crucial for a healthy body.

Speaking about the war-torn historical background of Okinava island, His Holiness said, "Past is only a memory, an experience. We cannot change it. But the future depends on the present. And using the experience of the past, we have to build a peaceful and happier world".

At the same time, His Holiness mentioned that the method to achieve happiness should be realistic.

"We have to look from various angles. One dimensional outlook is not enough. The method to attain peace should be realistic and holistic," His Holiness said.

"Fear, anger, jealousy, hatred, distrust; these negative emotion comes from the basis of self-centric arrogance. We have to train our mind to develop more compassion. Once we develop a sense of well-being for others, we develop a calm mind," His Holiness added.

His Holiness also stressed the need for secular moral ethics through a modern secular education.

"Secularism means respect to all religious traditions including non-believers. Secular ethics promotes common interests on the basis of mutual respect and mutual harmony", His Holiness said.
