Its time for the Dalai Lama to spea to his own people rather than wasting his remaining years.Make your own peole responsible and sensible if Tibetaines want to live a respectable life not the dependent life.In Latino countieries thousands of people are dying for their freedom . why not Tibetainos???????????????????????/

Jean Smith, you know what, H.H is doing every thing to save Tibetans ever since. More importantly, he is doing things for whole world to be more peaceful, kindness and better place to a live. Any way " Long live H.H The Dalai Lama."

I am happy HH The Dalai Lama is going to speak at the University of Texas. It is indeed an honour for the institution to have such an internationally respected personality like HH The Dalai Lama to visit their campus. Where ever he visits he brings out the best in human quality that of love and compassion. What is trully lacking in our world is compassion and a concern for other fellow beings. The world is once again torn apart with religious bigotry on both sides of the fence and unless we tackle this situation, we have a long nightmare of violence perpetrated in the name of protecting ones own religion on one side and the other indulging in violence in the name of democracy and freedom as we are witnessing in Iraq. There will be no end to such bloodshed unless we make an attempt to bring people together in the spirit of friendship and I think HH The Dalai Lama is one of those who has consistently endeavoured to create a climate of tolerance and cooperation among all religious traditons. This is good for the whole world. I think Jean Smith of Austin probably missed this point when he thought that HH The Dalai Lama is "careless" about solving the issue of Tibet. This is totally wrong as there is nothing more pressing in the mind of HH than the issue of Tibet as he is indeed the undisputed Temporal and religious leader of the Tibetan people. Where ever he visits, the issue of Tibet automatically comes up and this naturally brings awareness about Tibet to an ever larger audience and that is why the Chinese communist Government never fails to protest whenever he is invited to any country and even block them whenever they can. He never fails to speak about the present prevailing situation inside Tibet to any world leader who is willing to listen to him. He realises that when you confront a country like China which has at the moment a lot of clout on the diplomatic front, he has to approach from a global angle so that his own reach and influence is a match to counter the Chinese attempt to isolate him. If you are like a caged bird you can do nothing. It is therefore vital for HH to consolidate his own position and not fall into the trap which the chinese are trying their utmost to put him in. When you fight the enemy, is it not common sense to be a match to the strength of your enemy? There is no human being alive on this planet who is more concerened about the plight of the Tibetan people and their country than HH The Dalai Lama of Tibet. Pico Iyer who is a follower of HH whose interview appeared on this website mentioned the same and if you read the autobiography of Jetsun Pema, the younger sister of HH The Dalai Lama, you will be convinced without a doubt that the Dalai Lama's whole existence is for the people of Tibet and finding an amicable solution to the vexed issue of Tibet. For goodness sake, please do not forget, he is a Tibetan and he loves his people just as we love him. There is pobably no relation more unique than the relation between the people of Tibet and their beloved leader HH The Dalai Lama. This relation is by the way 360 years old! If the Americans love their democracy and proud of it we Tibetans love our leader HH The Dalai Lama and we are extremely proud of him. So Jean Smith's contention that he is in some way "careless" about Tibet is just like saying Michael Angelo being careless about his art or Beethoven being careless about his music!!! It just makes no sense at all.

Dalai Lama is Tibetan leader and his responsibility is to resolve Tibetan issues in Tibet with Chinese leaders. But he seems careless on Tibet and always busy in touring and teachings on Buddhism. No other countries will ever help to slove Tibet's problem. If Dalai Lama is paying less attention in his own responsibility then Chinese authorites will pay less attention to the criticism from different world leaders.
