The XIV Dalai Lama believes that the coronavirus pandemic is the result of accumulated karma and this cannot be changed. A video recording of his speech has been published on his official website.
At the same time, the leader of Tibetan Buddhism noted the importance of taking measures to prevent another similar outbreak in the future. According to him, people employed in the healthcare system are doing everything they can to achieve this goal.
“I appreciate the contributions of everyone on the front lines of the fight against the pandemic and thank you all for your dedication,” the Dalai Lama said.
