You may be thinking, Pray for Paris is a perfectly kind and compassionate phrase of support, and it is, but did you ever stop to seriously think about it? The Dalai Lama did and had some sensible advice for people…imploring them to not pray for Paris, but work for peace.
He told this to German broadcaster Deutsche Welle in a recent interview. Besides the play on words…pray for Paris asks God to fix a problem humans created.
“We cannot solve this problem only through prayers. I am a Buddhist and I believe in praying. But humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.”
