Dharamshala, November 30 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama graced the inaugural of a two-day seminar on Tibetan history organised by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (LTWA) here at the Gangkyi Hall.

In his address His Holiness the Dalai Lama emphasised the importance of keeping a neutral opinion while studying ones own history. His Holiness said we have to study the facts fairly without political and religious influences and judgments.

"And the best way to learn about the culture and the people who lived in the past is to study the unearthed objects or remains, which belonged to them", His Holiness the Dalai Lama said.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama also recounted many incidents about discovering things in Tibet, which shows the existence of the Tibetan civilisation some thousand years ago.

Appreciating the efforts of the LTWA in preserving and promoting Tibetan culture through such seminar, and many other initiatives, His Holiness said it is important to continue the work once started without neglecting it with the passage of time.

Kalon Tripa Prof Samdhong Rinpoche, who also spoke at the inaugural of the seminar, said sourcing the origin of a race or a nationality is historically important. He also said that it is not necessary that a race or a nationality should develop from where it was originated.

He said the Tibetan people have all the attributes of a distinct nationality, like large group of people living in one territory sharing common tradition and language.

"Thus ours is a Tibetan nationality's struggle--a struggle to preserve and safeguard our nationality", Kalon Tripa said.

He said it is the duty of this and coming generation to compile the past and recent happenings to record in the history of Tibet.

In his introductory speech Geshe Lhakdor, Director of the LTWA, give details about the achievements and workshops organised by the LTWA.

Present at the event were supreme justice commissioner and justice commissioners of the Tibetan Supreme Justice Commission, speaker of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile, two Kalons and officials of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), heads of the non-governmental organisations, and experts on the Tibetan history.

Conceived of and founded by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1970 in Dharamshala, LTWA is dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of the Tibetan culture in the world.
