I posted an article from the Associated Press about this subject earlier but just stumbled on the actual interview with Matthieu Ricard on YouTube… So here it is…
From The Associated Press
Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard, his crimson and marigold robes standing out against the sea of dark grey and navy pinstripes at Davos, said it’s time for an end to greed.
“We don’t need to go back to what we had before,” said Ricard, who gave up a career in cellular genetics 40 years ago and now is a translator for the Dalai Lama. “This is the moment to take a more altruistic world view.”
“The world has enough for people’s needs, but not enough for people’s greed,” he said, paraphrasing Indian independence icon Mahatma Gandhi.
