ダライ・ラマ、被災地で法要=「悲しみを再建の力に」-宮城・石巻

 

チベット仏教最高指導者ダライ・ラマ14世が5日午前、東日本大震災の犠牲者の慰霊のため、甚大な被害を受けた宮城県石巻市にある西光寺で法要を行っ た。ダライ・ラマが被災地を訪れるのは初めて。震災で家族や友人を失った参列者約1000人を前に、「悲劇が起きてしまったが、悲しみに沈み過ぎずに故郷 再建の力に変えてほしい」と語り掛けた。

ダライ・ラマは、沿道で出迎えた園児や参列者に「孤児はいるのか」「津波のときはどこにいたのか」など と声を掛けながら参堂。チベット語で読経した後、説法し「日本人には強い精神力と協調性がある。町をよみがえらせ、良い教育を与えることで、次なる世代に 幸せを引き継ぐことができる」と被災者を励ました。(2011/11/05-12:24)

Dalai Lama Offers Memorial Service in Disaster-Hit Japan City

Ishinomaki, Miyagi Pref., Nov. 5 (Jiji Press)--The 14th Dalai Lama offered a memorial service for the victims of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami at a Buddhist temple in Ishinomaki, a coastal city in Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan, on Saturday.
Before some 1,000 attendees who lost relatives or friends, the Tibetan spiritual leader said that he wants them to turn their sadness to the power for reconstruction.
Noting that the Japanese people have inner strength and know the importance of cooperation, the Dalai Lama said that happiness can be passed on to future generations by reviving the damaged communities and providing good education to children.
The temple avoided being washed away by the tsunami while nearby areas sustained heavy damage.
When he visited Tokyo in April to hold a memorial ceremony, the Dalai Lama said he would like to visit the disaster-hit Tohoku northeastern region to share the sorrow of affected people.
