China's Chosen Panchen Lama reaches out to Buddhists in Speech
Submitted by Patrick Groneman on Sat, 4/28/2012, 4:53pm
From the Guardian:
"The Panchen Lama is Tibetan Buddhism's second-highest spiritual leader, but followers of the exiled Dalai Lama do not recognise China's choice...
He criticised "materialistic technology" in his eight-minute speech and said greed had "unbalanced the ecosystems, contaminated the environments, caused natural disasters, spread epidemics, induced wars and hence endangered all sentient beings now and in future", according to an official translation of his speech."
