Dharamsala, July 29 – His Holiness the Dalai Lama said the exiled Uighur leader Rebiya Kadeer supports non-violence, countering Beijing’s allegations that the 62 year old head of World Uighur Congress masterminded the violence in Xinjiang earlier this month.

"She told me she totally agreed firstly to non-violence and, secondly, was not seeking separation," said His Holiness of the Uighur leader who is currently touring Japan.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama Tuesday was responding to questions after giving a public talk at the University of Warsaw on "Value of Education & Universal Responsibility".

The University Rector, Prof Katarzyna Chalasinska-Macukow, welcomed the 74-year-old Tibetan leader and expressed her gratitude to His Holiness for his visit.

His Holiness said that the real purpose of education is to lead a meaningful and happy life and that this should permeate within the family, society and ultimately to the whole of humanity, a report by Office of Tibet, London. His Holiness also spoke about the importance of moral values and said that a compassionate person was found to be happier and had a healthy state of mind.

The Tibetan spiritual and temporal leader also stressed that education with warm-heartedness brought inner strength; self-confidence and that such a person can deal with others much more openly and truthfully.

The Tibetan Nobel laureate fielded questions from the audience on various issues from current global economic crisis to the recent demonstrations in Eastern Turkestan. He asked the Polish people to visit Tibet and find out the truth for themselves and decide whether the official Chinese statement that Tibetans enjoy a happy life was true.

The University's Rector presented His Holiness with the ‘Medal of the University’ and citation "in recognition of His Holiness' great contribution to education for peace and ethics based on love and compassion and for being a great moral inspiration to the world community."

His Holiness the Dalai Lama later visited the Warsaw Rising Museum where he said, "Since 1956 in many parts of Tibet there is a similar situation. Even the Chinese, communist military sometimes used bombs, airplanes. "

His Holiness lit a candle at the foot of a memorial wall inscribed with thousands of names of Polish resistance fighters killed in the Uprising launched August 1, 1944.

"Very moving,” His Holiness said. He said he always admired the Polish people's spirit.

His Holiness will be awarded the honorary citizenship of Warsaw at a function today in the Royal Castle. Former Polish President and Nobel Peace Laureate Mr. Lech Walesa will also attend the function.
