Santiago, May 8 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama arrived in Santiago on 3 May. Soon after checking in at the Hotel Marriott, His Holiness met with the Chilean press. Around 100 Chilean media reporters attended the meet.

After the press meet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama gave an exclusive interview separately to the National Television and to the El Mercurio, the largest circulated national newspaper of Chile.

In the afternoon, His Holiness visited the most prestigious university of Chile and spoke on maintaining a balance between nurturing good, intelligent brain and warm heart.

Speaking to 250 faculty members of the university and other invited intellectuals and opinion makers, His Holiness said development of mind alone is not adequate in education.

His Holiness said that the human intelligence should be compounded with nurturing a warm heart to use it in the most productive and constructive way.

His Holiness commented that the modern education lacks in the promotion of moral values, resulting in the use of human intelligence and technologies in destructive ways as shown by the experience of September 11 incident.

He urged educationists, academics, and others who are connected with the education to find a way to maintain a delicate balance between the development of mind and nurturing a good heart, while educating the youngsters.

In his opening remark, the Dean of the University Prof. Jorge Litvak applauded His Holiness for his ceaseless efforts in leading a non-violent struggle of the Tibetan people to regain their rights and also for providing moral guidance to the global community at this difficult time.

Before addressing the University of Chile, His Holiness had a private meeting with Mr. Jiame Nanjo, Vice President of the Senate of the Republic of Chile, the upper house of Chile's bi-cameral national congress.
