Interesting Quote on Invention – by Dalai Lama

We had a rule in Tibet that anyone proposing a new invention had to guarantee that it was beneficial, or at least harmless, for seven generations of humans before it could be adopted.“- Dalai Lama.

I find this quote very interesting, because it does highlight the importance of sustainability and also emphasizes our responsibility towards Mother Earth, Environment as well as our fellow human beings occupying this planet, tested and confirmed over a long period.

IMHO invention is only the beginning of a responsible process that ought to incorporate these factors of Safety, Sustainability and inventor’s accountability towards our next generations. Thought I should share these thoughts with Readers & Followers of this blog.

Have a Wonderful Day!

    For seven generations? That is 700 years should one live to a hundred. Hmmm… a tall order.
