DHARAMSHALA, MAY 18: The players of the Tibetan national football team and the members of the Tibetan National Sports Association today called on His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the latter’s residence here. The national squad is set to visit England to participate in the CONIFA World Cup between May 31 and June 9, 2018.

The Tibetan leader told the players and their staff that they must take with them the compassionate nature for which Tibetans are known. “Where ever you go as professionals, you must make sure that it upholds and enhances the Tibetan dignity. We Tibetans deserve to take pride in ourselves. When we were displaced as refugees initially, we did not have much except preserving our religion and culture. But now over the last few decades, our culture of compassion is truly remarkable, and concurs with science,” the 82 year old Tibetan leader told the players and their staff.

The Tibetan leader was presented a souvenir of the Tibetan squad by TNSA’s president Pasang Dorjee.

The Tibetan president Dr. Lobsang Sangay met the players later in the day at the Kashag building where he, along the team management, addressed a press conference. “It’s a moment of pride and happiness for all Tibetans as our national football team is going to participate in a global football tournament. If we go on to win it, it will be an even bigger achievement. Even if we can’t, our team’s participation will enthuse our brethren inside Tibet to see the Tibetan national team and flag among other nations of the world,” he said.

Passang Dorjee, President of Tibetan National Sports Association, thanked the Kashag for providing Fifteen hundred thousand rupees towards the team’s expenses, and the office of Tibet, London and the Bureau of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Delhi for helping with the paper works.
