DHARAMSHALA, September 8: The Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama today left Dharamshala on a 15-day visit to various European countries beginning from Derry-Londonderry in Northern Ireland on September 10, where he will give a public talk on ‘Compassion in Action’.

The exiled Tibetan leader’s itinerary include visit to Germany, Italy and Latvia, where he will be giving teachings and public talks. He is also scheduled take part in a conference on Western Science and Buddhist Perspectives in Frankfurt, Germany, and a two-day symposium on Buddhist Science and Modern Science in Tuscany, Italy.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama made a similar visit to Europe last year during which the Nobel Peace Laureate was made an honorary citizen of Milan. The highlights of 2016 trip also include his visit to the European Parliament and his address at the committee on Foreign Affairs in Strasbourg.

The Dalai Lama had to cancel his last foreign trip to Botswana due to ‘exhaustion’. In his letter to Ian Khama, President of the Republic of Botswana and Dr. Susan Bauer-Wu, President of Mind & Life Institute, the Dalai Lama expressed his profound regret for cancelling his scheduled visit last month.

As expected, the visit to Botswana was heavily protested by the Chinese government which pressured and warned Ian Khama’s administration to disinvite the Dalai Lama or face serious consequences.

Following the cancellation, President Khama on August 18 came out strong against China’s interference and said that ‘Botswana was not China’s Colony’.

2017’s four nations Europe trip will end at Riga, Latvia where His Holiness the Dalai Lama will spend three days including a 2-day teaching on Kamalashila’s The Middling Stages of Meditation and Tsongkhapa’s Concise Stages of the Path to Enlightenment at Skonto Hall on September 23 and 24. His Holiness will give a public talk on ‘Harmony Without Boundaries’ at the same venue the following day.
