Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama said on Saturday he considered himself a “messenger” of core Indian values of non-violence and secularism.

In a spiritual discourse in the city, he said in India, the principles of non-violence and secularism are not just preached but also practised.

“I am the ‘sevak’ carrying this message wherever I travel outside the country,” he said. He said technological advancements of the 21st century cannot bring peace, brotherhood and happiness. “All religions teach these values and India is the only country in the world where these teachings thrive. Mumbai is one such glaring example,” the spiritual leader said.

He said he is 76 years old, but still studies whenever he gets time. "Education is very important and an essential part of your life. The uniqueness of Buddhism is to utilise human intelligence in the maximum way," he added.
