now have a chance of a better life. Many ethnic cultures which have been relatively isolated are  being exposed to the technological world at an alarming pace and are consequently in danger of losing the very thing that that has given them strength and integrity for thousands of years.

Customs, knowledge and traditions that have held these societies together are in danger of being lost as rapid, unplanned economic growth effects traditional life. The rich diversity of the world’s cultures is under threat. Although these changes are inevitable and in many ways beneficial a balance is needed between the old and the new approach to life. Somehow a way needs to be found to preserve cultural diversity and enable economic prosperity that will allow vulnerable cultures to survive.

He has said that when we meet on the basic human level we come to realise that we are all the same and that we all have similar issues and problems. With more awareness of our inter-connectedness we are then able to address these problems and find ways make the world a better place for everyone.
