Do you still think we’re the only ones in the universe? Most people who oppose this phenomenon due to religious beliefs have never had to deal with it before.
A religious leader recently spoke openly about life in the universe and the existence of alien life forms comparable to ourselves.
This time, the Dalai Lama addressed the issue at the University of Portland (Oregon) during a meeting titled “Universal Responsibility and the Internal Environment.” Simultaneously, journalist Stephen Cook publishes an article headlined “The Dalai Lama discloses that visitors from other galaxies are the same as us.”
The Dalai Lama gave the audience an example. How would we see beings from distant worlds if we came across them? We would be terrified of diversity. We would be afraid and rejected because of their peculiarities. The Dalai Lama, on the other hand, stated that we should embrace them and treat them as equals.
It is not the first time the highest representative of Buddhism has spoken about these issues; in fact, professor John Mack had the opportunity to speak with him about this occurrence in 2000.
