His Holiness Dalai Lama's speech on Compassion at Stanford University

The Charter for Compassion

As she accepts her 2008 TED Prize, author and scholar Karen Armstrong talks about how the Abrahamic religions - Islam, Judaism, Christianity - have been diverted from the moral purpose they share to foster compassion. But Armstrong has seen a yearning to change this fact. People want to be religious, she says; we should act to help make religion a force for harmony. She asks the TED community to help her build a Charter for Compassion - to help restore the Golden Rule as the central global religious doctrine.
