The Central Tibetan Administration proclaims 17th May as Tibet Solidarity Day. This day symbolizes international community’s solidarity with the aspirations of the Tibetan people who yearn for freedom and continue to stand strong in the face of great adversity. Observation of this day is decided jointly by the Kashag and Parliamentary Standing Committee.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Sunday spoke on educating the heart at the prestigious Dalhousie Public School located in northern India, underscoring that India’s religious harmony, democracy and rule of law is a model for others to follow.
Introducing His Holiness to the students, the Principal of the DPS said that His Holiness the Dalai Lama presence made it a ‘red-letter day.’
“I am extremely happy to be here with you, such a large number of young students. As someone approaching his 78th birthday, when I meet young people like you, it makes me feel younger again. Looking at you, in this beautiful wooded environment, I’m aware that people like you are the face of modern India and you will take responsibility for the future,” His Holiness told students of DPS and those from Sacred Heart School and the Guru Nanak Public School.

The Dalai Lama yesterday visited the city of Londonderry to lead Protestant and Catholic children in a symbolic walk across a peace bridge, delivering a message of hope and support for the peace process.
Undaunted by sharp showers of rain, the Tibetan leader alternated earnest entreaties with much chuckling and laughter in a combination of spirituality and humour which seemed to charm the locals.
Dressed in his characteristic red robes he told the young: “The last century was the century of violence. This must be the century of peace. My generation's century is now gone, but the future is still in your hands.”
