The Dalai Lama has told Mexicans that Christianity and Buddhism coincide in their pursuit of human happiness.
Both religions promote "love, compassion and self-discipline" that lead to happiness, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader told some 3,000 people yesterday.
More than 90 per cent of Mexico's 118 million people are Catholic. With his usual smile and good humor, the Dalai Lama said
that for decades, Christian leaders have been interested in some Buddhist teachings.
Christianity promotes the concept of a transcendent and unique God as creator, while Buddhism refutes the existence of a creator.
The Dalai Lama's trip, which began Friday, marks his fourth to Mexico, home to some 5,000 Buddhists. He will leave on Wednesday.
