Dharamshala — “It does not bear mentioning that we the Tibetan people living in exile have been fortunate to be enjoying freedom and democracy under the leadership and guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Nevertheless, we remain intensely mindful of the fact that to our fellow Tibetans living in Tibet, life under the rule of the Communist Party of China is still defined by continuous deprivation of basic human rights and freedoms, and total absence of democracy and so forth,” said Speaker of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile on the 62nd Tibetan Democracy Day.
Ladakh, UT, India — “Times are changing and the truth will prevail. There are indications that things will change for the better in China before long. Therefore, please remain strong and preserve your sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. Be cheerful and remain at ease,” said His Holiness the Dalai Lama, on August 7, 2022.
Ladakh, UT, India — “Since Ladakh is a border region, my travels will not go unnoticed across the frontier. A smiling Dalai Lama meeting people who show such deep faith and trust in him not only gives inspiration to Tibetans in Tibet, but for them is also a source of pride. Despite some rigid communist officials labelling me a reactionary, when they see a perpetually smiling Dalai Lama doing his best to serve humanity, they might doubt the harsh policies they have imposed on Tibetans,” said His Holiness the Dalai Lama on August 25, 2022.
Ladakh, UT, India — His Holiness the Dalai Lama inaugurated a new centre of learning at Thupstanling Monastery, Diskit Tsal, Leh on Tuesday and said, “the essence of all religions is to be of help to others. Of course, providing financial and other material support is good, but it is even better to counsel others to be warm-hearted and develop peace of mind”.
Leh, Ladakh, UT, India — “The courage and spirit of the people of Tibet is undaunted and they have unwavering faith and trust in me. Keeping our Buddhist cultural heritage alive in the Himalayan regions will naturally benefit the Tibetan people. Our struggle for freedom and dignity is based on truth and justice and will be best achieved by relying on ‘ahimsa’, which means observing non-violence and doing no harm. Since a growing number of brothers and sisters in China are Buddhist, I am confident that things will change for the better before long,” said His Holiness the Dalai Lama on July 28, 2022.
