"The generosity of these two cultural centres in hosting His Holiness the Dalai Lama and organizing the Tibet Festival will provide us the opportunity to spread the message of His Holiness to a wider audience and in introducing the wealth of Tibet’s cultural heritage to the people of Gujarat," said Kalon Kesang Y.
