Commitment to Mahatma Gandhi's principle of non-violence will certainly usher change in the world, Tibetan Prime Minister-in-exile Samdong Rinpoche said in Ahmedabad on Friday.
The Tibetan PM was in the city to attend a prayer meeting organised at the Sabarmati Ashram on the 61st death anniversary of the Father of the Nation.
"Violence can destroy the entire earth. Only if we remain committed to the principle of non-violence of Mahatma Gandhi, change will come definitely. To practice non-violence is a divine thing which has blessings from God," Rinpoche told mediapersons.
When asked about the conflict between Tibet and China, Rimpoche said they were in talks with the Chinese government and trying to persuade them to accept their demands.
"A non-violent approach on this issue will bring in some results," he hoped.
Veteran Gandhian Nayanbhai Desai and people from all walks of life gathered today in large numbers at the ashram, while children from various schools across the city also attended the prayer meet.
