LOCAL AND NON-LOCAL
This brief discernment is to complement the following presentation https://www.dalailama.com/videos/dialogue-with-southeast-asian-youth:
A few critical and meaningful aspects of the presentation based on context rather than content:
It is meaningful and inspiring for the Dalai Lama to encourage the nurturing and development of inner senses and values of being to complement the outer senses and conditions of being for essential and meaningful transformation. And betterment of the human conditions and states of being and becoming. And thus, sustainable transformative well being development and living. Furthermore, nurturing and developing the inner self would increase the potential of better perceiving and experiencing the world. And thus, nature of reality and truth. Therefore, would be invaluable and long lasting benefits to the individual and collective in the known physical world. An beyond.
Furthermore, also mentioned that the human conditions, experience, states of being and becoming, transformation, and well being development and living or epistemology and ontology of life and existence development, living, and practices are secular. And do not belong to any disciplines and practices as well as are beyond all of them (i.e. such as philosophy, science, religion, culture, tradition, race, group, and so on) or basically what the human conditions and experience as well as academia meant ((i.e. the human perception and experience as well as academia on epistemology and ontology is of or encompass infinite potentialities of possibilities). And therefore, are inclusive, open, and the domain of all or intellectual property rights, freedom, and inherent rights of all to participate, develop, practice, share, and be parts of the solutions. Another way of saying is they are as parts of individual and shared-collective universal ethics and accountability and responsibility (universal ethics and responsibility are also parts of the Dalai Lama social engagement and leadership program) for self and collective empowerment and liberation for invaluable and long lasting benefits. And the betterment of all in the known physical world. And far beyond. And thus, all should be inspired and aspired to be parts of or can be parts of heartful-mindful care generational transformation and solutions development and living.
And the Dalai Lama suggestions of creating and developing programs and practices through scientific exploration-research-development-applications, academia, education, and individual and collective development and living to nurture, develop, know, and purify mind (mind implies heart-mind since they are irreducible. And therefore, vice versa or heart also implies mind. And which is a subtle or hidden main context of the Heart Sutra inspiration, encouragement, and guidance (i.e. effects or causalities of forbidden and hidden knowledge and practices through ancient language and expression. Mistaken biologic physical senses and or mind only were and are causes for such as illusion. delusion, dream, literally no-self, panpsychism, materialism, dualism, and idealism perception and experience of the world. And therefore, essential and meaningful naturalness-spiritual nurturing and development from birth to adult or end of biologic life, can easily prevent such errors of false perception and experience of oneself and the world)) are excellent ideas to nurture and develop existing potential or ability to recognize and aware of the inner or real self or subtle body-mind. And ability and capacity to know and transform one self (or "Know Thyself" need to be priority and urgency) in meaningful ways during life cycle in the known physical world (in particularly, the many potentials and benefits of nurturing and development starting from conception in the mother womb through childhood, youth, and adult development, living, and practices). And far beyond since heart-mind belongs to the subtle body-mind or emerging spirit-soul potentialities of possibilities rather than the biologic physical body although they are intertwined and entangled as sum of parts of the many sentient composite body-mind system.
And therefore, are great opportunities across disciplines and practices from scientific to academia to engineering to technology to education to entrepreneur to business to professional to potentially all kind of development and living. A simple way of saying is if there existed so many ways of life and practices for just the biological body. Then, there should be much more when the subtle body-mind is integrated as part of the human holistic development and living. And in particularly, for female and children holistic sustainable development and living. Another way of saying is would open up great opportunities for heart-mind. And therefore, great imagination, creativity, and innovation opportunities.
The Dalai Lama is correct in stating that only human species has evolved the body-mind (biologic body and subtle body-mind) and the potential ability and capability (i.e. has to nurture and develop such potential or ability and capacity) to recognize and aware of the inner or real self. And to know itself. A simple way of saying is animals or many tens of millions of or all other species on earth cannot. And therefore, should rise and ascend to the occasion or opportunities to advance and better the individual, collective, and sentient in the known physical world. And beyond.
Such global initiatives, collaborations, and efforts would inspire, empower, and liberate people and communities to develop, practice, and advance meaningful life and social essentials and values, shared and collective accountability and responsibility, the common and greater good, quality and meaningful life, and well being. All the while prevent and eliminate malpractice, harm, injustice, and suffering in the known physical world. And beyond.
