Inspired by His Holiness the Dalai Lama's aims and ideals, especially those values of dialogue, non-violence and altruism, the Tenzin Gyatso Institute is delighted to announce the launch of the "Compassion in Society" programme. Compassion in Society will offer real-world tools for cultivating compassion, and demonstrate its universal applicability for modern men and women. Initially offered to young people, "Compassion in Society" will be launched at the "Empathy and Compassion in Society" conference that the institute is co-hosting in London from November 23-24. Featuring neuroscientists, psychologists, educators, policy experts and changemakers, the conference marks a new chapter of the Tenzin Gyatso Institute.

But as one scientist says in the following video maybe the Tibetans couldn’t have sent a man to the moon, but if they had been part of the project we could have gotten there without having to fight about it.
