The former US president and the spiritual leader talked about the importance of compassion and world peace. They discussed a problem of violence and overall disorders, which have covered the humanity during the last decades.
Dalai Lama said he considers Barack to be his old trusted friend who shares his beliefs and life standing principles. Lama added it’s good when two like-minded persons can meet and talk about something that really matters to them:
I mentioned to him that now time has come for us to promote the sense of oneness among seven billion human beings. It is sad to see there are so much differences among people.
It was not the first time Obama met Dalai Lama. Their previous meeting was in the Oval Cabinet when Obama was still a president. Two leaders discovered they share a common philosophy on many social and cultural aspects.
It was a pleasure to meet, once again, former President @BarackObama, and learn about the new initiatives being taken forward under his leadership at the @ObamaFoundation and his perspectives on further strengthening India-US strategic partnership. pic.twitter.com/fvoGgF6CZM

Time passes unhindered. When we make mistakes, we cannot turn the clock back and try again. All we can do is use the present well.
The goal is not to be better than the other man, but your previous self.
In our struggle for freedom, truth is the only weapon we possess.
The true hero is one who conquers his own anger and hatred.
We know that these two individuals do everything to improve the lives of people on our planet. Thus, let's support their efforts.
