DHARAMSHALA, June 13: A longtime supporter of Tibet and a close friend of the exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama has introduced a resolution in the US Congress in honor of the Tibetan leader who turns 80 next month.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) introduced the resolution extending wellwishes to the Tibetan leader on his 80th birthday and recognizes the Tibetan leader’s lifelong commitment and outstanding contribution to the promotion of nonviolence, human rights, religious tolerance, environmental awareness and democracy.

The resolution also acknowledges the the Dalai Lama for using moral authority to promote the concept of universal responsibility as a guiding tenet for how human beings should treat one another and the planet that all human beings share.

“His Holiness is a singular figure among world leaders, moral authorities and religious mentors,” said Senator Feinstein. “His message of peace, compassion and nonviolence has resonated throughout the world, bridged divides and inspired millions to recognize the common humanity among us. To my dear friend, I wish you a very happy birthday and many more years in which your teachings can touch even more lives.”

Cosponsoring the resolution are Senators Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.).

“The Dalai Lama is an international symbol for peace and human rights. His leadership for the Tibetan people's quest for religious freedom and fundamental rights despite adversity is an inspiration to us all,” said Senator Kirk.

The Tibetan leader will take part in the Official World Celebration of his 80th Birthday at the Global Compassion Summit organized by Friends of the Dalai Lama, UC Irvine and Center for Living Peace on July 6.

Three days of events from Jily 5-7 will highlight the different areas in which His Holiness has had great impact on bringing compassion to the world. The summit and birthday celebration will also feature a shared stage and dialogue amongst dear friends of His Holiness, fellow Nobel Laureates and professional experts with whom he has collaborated and shares common values toward the achievement of Universal Peace.
