The following is the full text of His Holiness' message:


September 6, 2005

His Excellency George W. Bush
President of the United States
The White House
Washington, DC
USA

Your Excellency,

I am shocked and deeply saddened by the massive destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina. The loss of many lives is particularly tragic. The catastrophe is almost unimaginable in its extent and destruction. On behalf of the Tibetan people, I would like to express to you our deep sense of solidarity with the many Americans who have suffered so much from this great natural calamity. We share the immense suffering and the terrible losses that the victims of this calamity have had to endure and continue to do so. As a symbolic gesture of our deep feelings we would like to contribute US$ 100,000 (one hundred thousand US dollars) to the efforts of your Administration in coordinating the massive aid to the affected people in the United States.

The transfer of above mentioned amount will be administered by The Office of Tibet in New York to an appropriate relief agency.

As is our tradition, special prayers will be offered by large congregations of monks and nuns.

With prayers and good wishes,


Yours sincerely,
The Dalai Lama
