On October 21 2012 it became known that NOBEL PEACE PRIZE 2012 was awarded to European Union.
✿ღ ✿⊱ Congratulation to ALL EUROPEANS. Countries consist of PEOPLE. Hope that EU Commission will stop co-financing meat, fish and dairy industry. As EU institution who was also awarded with NOBEL PEACE PRIZE 2012 -they must know : Meat is k
illing! Instead governments accross EU are diminishing finances for education, culture and science. They (like Slovenia EU) increased finances for agriculture and defence in 2013/14. EU institutions need to act upon Nobel Peace Prize Award by supporting culture of peace , not killing industry.

European Union was awarded as a force of peace after the IInd world war .
Now in 2012 , some EU states are using tear gass and water ballots against peaceful protesters in many European cities . See related videos and news :
Tear gas and water cannon has been deployed against angry demonstrators as they tried to storm the parliament premises in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. Thousands flooded the streets demanding the “corrupt” government resign.
Police arrested several protesters as they tried to disperse the crowd.Some of the demonstrators were said to be throwing rocks, bottles and firecrackers at them, AP reports.
People were carrying banners that read “You are finished” and “thieves,” as a crowd of about 8,000 gathered to voice their anger about with government cost-cutting measures and other reforms designed to avoid an international bailout in the cash-strapped EU nation.
The latest unrest follows a massive march on Friday when thousands protested against Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa and his Cabinet, accusing them of corruption and fraud and demanding their resignations. The actions come ahead of this weekends presidential election.
UN Millennium Development Goals shared United Nations Information Centre’s photo.
Ban Ki-moon message for Friday’s International Day of Peace:
“Armed conflicts attack the very pillars of sustainable development. Natural resources must be used for the benefit of society, not to finance wars. Children should be in school, not recruited into armies. National budgets should focus on building human capacity, not deadly weapons.”
The theme of Friday’s International Day of Peace is “Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future.”

South African Archbishop and Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu speaks during an interview with Reuters in New Delhi February 8, 2012.(Reuters / B Mathur)
(20.8Mb) embed video
Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa and two other Nobel Peace winners have written to the foundation to protest the decision to award the 2012 prize to the EU.
The letter was also signed by Mairead Maguire of Northern Ireland, who won the prize for her efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the troubles in 1976 and by Argentina’s Adolfo Perez Esquivel who won the laureate in 1980.
“The EU is clearly not ‘the champion of peace’ that Alfred Nobel had in mind when he wrote his will. The Norwegian Nobel committee has redefined and remodeled the prize in a manner that it is not consistent with the law,” they said in an open letter.
They added that the committee should respect the original wishes of the Nobel founder who died in 1896 and called for the $1.2 million prize money not to be paid to the EU.
As well as a check, the prize consists of a diploma and a gold medal. The EU has said it will donate the money to children affected by war and conflicts.
The awarding of the prize on December 10th has already sparked discord within the EU itself. British Prime Minister David Cameron, will lead the list of leaders who have said they will not attend.
Cameron’s pithy remark that “there will be enough people to collect the prize”, was seen as reflective of his and his conservative parties ambivalent attitude towards the EU.
While Nigel Farage, the leader of United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), said that he would “struggle to accept it” and that awarding the prize to the EU brought it [the Nobel committee] into “disrepute.”
Czech president Vaclav Klaus, a noted Euro skeptic and Swedish Prime Minster Fredrik Reinfeldt have also said they will skip the event.
In host country Norway, four cabinet ministers from a euro skeptic party have also vowed not to attend.
European President Herman Van Rompuy has called on all 27 member states to attend, including Croatia, which is soon to become an EU member.
German leader Angela Merkel and French President Francoise Hollande have said they will be at the event in Oslo.
When the prize was awarded to the EU in October there was a chorus of criticism from euro skeptic politicians across the continent. But in recent years the Nobel committee has appeared to often court controversy. In 2009 it named Barack Obama as the winner, even through the US was fighting two wars at the time. While in 1973, it was awarded to North Vietnamese leader Le Duc Tho for restoring peace in South Vietnam; Tho refused to accept the prize.

III. INTERFAITH DIALOGUES
dhammmaraja – Thailand – has posted a comment on your channel:
hello…I just have question about your buddhist organization, does your teacher believe that Lord Buddha regard Union with brahman or god are same like Nirvana?
BUDDHIST DHARMA IN DAILY LIFE & INTERFAITH DIALOGUES ♫♥♫✿♥ _/♥\_ོཾ་མཎི་པད་མེ་ཧུཾ་ Om mani padme hum .
Interfaith dialogues are good, but without syncretism (i.e. mixing of religions). Every religion has its own View : theistic religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism ) believe in God (which they call Brahma, Jahve, God etc) or in many gods (polytheistic religions). Buddhist Dharma is different from theistic religions . Buddha nature in every being can not be compared to God or Brahma , Shiva. To understand this one must study and practice authentic Buddhist Dharma based on Buddha Shakyamuni 1st turning of the Dharma Wheel at Sarnath : Four Noble Truths and Eightfold noble path are the only way to “get” out of samsara . 1st spoke of the Eightfold noble path is : RIGHT UNDERSTANDING . This Right Understanding means to understand 4 Noble Truths and to step on the footsteps of the Enlightened One. When one obtains Mahayana Refuge to Buddha -Dharma -Sangha there is explanation : one should not worship worldly gods any more . If one still worship worldly gods (after receiving Mahayana Refuge) one is breaking the Mahayana Refuge Vow. I know that very few Lamas or Teachers clearly explain this to students , they just organise Refuge ceremony and students often don´t know corresponding Vows connected with the Mahayana Refuge : Pancasila or 5 ethical precepts of Buddhism (known also in Theravada/Hinayana Buddhism ) and Refuge Vow that I explained above (not to worship worldly gods). Not to worship worldly gods does not mean that one is disrespectful toward them: it means that one knows the difference between Buddhist Path and theistic paths . We had many symphosiums / Interfaith Dialogues with other religions already.
