I sincerely congratulate all the faithful Muslims of Russia and the world on one of the most revered holidays of Islam, Eid al-Adha! This is a bright holiday of cleansing the spirit, when, forgetting about vanity, people become closer to each other and gather at the same table with relatives, relatives and friends to support everyone who needs help.

Eid al-Adha is a true symbol of spiritual purification and justice, the desire to follow the path of moral improvement. This holiday commemorates the end of the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca. Eid al-Adha awakens the best aspirations in the souls of believers: compassion, selflessness and mercy towards their neighbours.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama was welcomed by video link by Dr Anupam Sibal, President of the Global Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (GAPIO) and Dr Akshay Anand, Professor, PGIMER, Chandigarh, representing the India Yoga Association. 

The 14th Dalai Lama said: “Now, as far as health is concerned, it relates not only to our bodies, but also to our minds and emotions. The practice of compassion and altruism brings us peace of mind. Even if we face trouble or someone is critical of something we’ve said or done, compassion enables us to feel grateful to them. Compassion is the best counter measure to anger, anxiety and so forth.
