The Dalai Lama has released a new short video sharing a message of oneness. The three-minute video, titled “The Art of Hope,” was produced in collaboration with the London-based Cultural Institute of Radical Contemporary Arts (CIRCA). Watch the video here.
The video debuted on January 11, broadcast “across a global network of screens in London, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Melbourne.”
From CIRCA’s press release about the project:
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, one of the most influential figures of our time, calls on the world to consider hope and the oneness of humanity with this 3 minute animation created in collaboration with CIRCA. The 87 year old spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 and the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal in 2006. The four life commitments of His Holiness are promoting human values – kindness and compassion, religious harmony, preservation of Tibetan culture and environment, and revival of Ancient Indian Wisdom. Addressing the world in a video message record inside his office in Dharamshala, India, where His Holiness lives in exile, the Dalai Lama said: “I am trying to promote the sense of oneness of 7 billion human beings. This world, we have to live together.”
