The Dalai Lama is Rising with Us!
Today we are so excited to announce that His Holiness the Dalai Lama has publicly expressed his support of V-Day's ONE BILLION RISING campaign!
On December 8, 2012 His Holiness sent a personally signed note saying:
I am happy to give my support to the One Billion Rising global campaign against violence against women and girls.
We need to use our common sense, and encourage others to use theirs, to understand what violence towards women and girls entails. There are no circumstances under which such violence can be justified; no benefit can even be achieved by violence. The only certainty is that where there is violence, always and inevitably there is suffering. Understanding that the nature of violence is suffering, leads to a clear understanding its harmfulness and futility.
