His Holiness the Dalai Lama graced the 48th anniversary of Tibetan Children's Village along with Karmapa Rinpoche.
The Dalai Lama advised the TCV and Department of Education to give more emphasis to produce more professionals. Apart from this, His Holiness outlined certain clarifications about the forthcoming General Meeting which takes place in Dharamsala in the midddle of next month. The Dalai Lama's appearance in public at the TCV function is his first after his treatment for a gallstone in a Delhi hospital.
China has repeatedly accused the Dalai Lama of leading a campaign to split Tibet from the rest of the country. The Dalai Lama has denied the allegations, saying he is only seeking greater autonomy for the Himalayan region to protect its unique Buddhist culture — a policy he calls the "middle way."
"I have been sincerely pursuing the middle way approach in dealing with China for a long time now but there hasn't been any positive response from the Chinese side," he said in Tibetan at a public function Saturday in Dharmsala, the north Indian town that is home to Tibet's government-in-exile.
