Future of humanity 人類の未来

"I feel optimistic about the future because humanity seems to be growing more mature; scientists are paying more attention to our inner values, to the study of mind and the emotions. There is a clear desire for peace and concern for the environment." (From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's facebook on December 27, 2013)

「人類はより成熟しつつあるようですので、私は将来について楽観的に感じています。科学者は内面の価値や、心と感情の研究により一層注意を払っています。平和への明白な希求と環境への配慮があります。(超訳)

Maybe because humans are tired of too much materialism. Even though we become rich, we can't be happy.(My commentary)

その理由は、人間は過度な物質至上主義にうんざりしたのかもしれません。金持ちになっても、幸せになることはできません。(解説)
