The Tibetan leader will deliver a lecture on ‘Peace among nations' during the inauguration of the Happy Thoughts World Peace Festival on 10th of October.

The festival intends to propose 10 solutions for the world and inner peace that the foundation believes in, and about 100,000 people are expected to attend the festival.
