DHARAMSHALA, Aug.15: Following a schedule that expanded over two continents in the last two months, the Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama this morning touched down at Kangra Airport, just a short drive from his home in exile for the last few decades, Dharamshala.

He was received by the top officials of the Central Tibetan Administration including its President Dr. Lobsang Sangay at the Airport.

The 82 year old who was supposed to attend a Mind and Life conference in Gaborone, Botswana had to cancel his visit to the African nation due to advice from his physicians to recuperate after a hectic and lengthy itinerary.

The Tibetan leader told reporters at the Gaggal airport that he regretted not being able to make it to Botswana. He said that it was too much for his body. He said he missed another meeting with the mischievous' with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

The Dalai Lama last left Dharamshala in mid-June, when he attended his annual health check up at the Mayo clinic in Rochester, USA. The Tibetan leader gave teachings and public talks in San Diego and Minnesota before spending over a month in Ladakh giving religious teachings and also taking part in official celebration his 82nd birthday.

Yesterday the Dalai Lama visited the campus of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai for the launch of the institute’s Social Sciences’ Course in Secular Ethics for Higher Education. At the official function, the octogenarian Tibetan leader congratulated TISS for their initiative and said, “Many educationalists and scientists are of the view that our present education system is not adequate. In the past people looked to religious tradition for ethical guidance, but today more than 1 billion people declare they have no interest in religion. We need something to fill the gap, to show that warm-heartedness leads to improved well-being.

“We need something to indicate that what destroys our inner peace is anger. We may feel it’s a natural part of the mind, but anger and compassion cannot co-exist. If we ask what use anger is to us, we find that it destroys our peace of mind and upsets family life, so it’s of no use.”
