Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Friday praised the RSS for its support to the Tibetan cause and said it has done good work towards promoting the values of discipline and dedication.

Dalai Lama was talking to mediapersons at the RSS Smruti Mandir premises after paying tributes to RSS founder late K B Hedgewar and his successor Guruji Golwalkar at their memorials there.

Recalling his association with VHP leader Ashok Singhal and late RSS leader K S Sudarshan, Dalai Lama said that the RSS is working in India with dedication similar to ours in Tibet. “RSS has always supported the cause of Tibet and hence I always had love for it,” Dalai Lama said, adding, ‘RSS thinks not just for India but for the entire world.”

Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat was away on tour but the two leaders spoke on phone during which Bhagwat told Dalai Lama that the RSS will continue to support the cause of Tibet.

RSS western region chief Ravi Joshi and Nagpur city chief Dilip Gupta accompanied him during the visit. Joshi described Dalai Lama’s visit as “inspiring for swayamsevaks.”

    Sikhism is a monotheistic religion, and the basic Sikh belief is represented in the phrase Ik Onkar meaning "One God." Sikhism has no time for the cast system, which is OK. The cast system is out dated and must be abolished fast. Any system that discriminates between human beings is not worthy and should be got rid of fast. India is indeed a great Nation. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet always says: India is the worlds largest Democracy. It has the most divers religious groupings living in peace and harmony than any other country in the world. Therefore it is the leading Nation for religious harmony. ''Indeed the land of the Buddha is the land of peace harmony and enlightenment. Someone once famously said you can't turn a sows ear into a silk purse and therefore it will always be a sows ear. Likewise the Nation of India cannot be turned into a Hindu Nation because it has always been a Hindu Nation.
