The Dalai Lama concluded his two- week European tour in Hanover, Germany on September 20, 2013 before returning to his home in exile, Dharamsala, northern India.

He visited the Vien Grian Vietnamese Buddhist temple at Hanover as his last stop before concluding the tour, where thousands of Vietnamese followers came to see him.“I am very happy to have been able to come to visit this Vietnamese temple” said the Dalai Lama.

Before concluding his talk , a woman asked him to come back as the 15th Dalai Lama to help people like her,” to which the Dalai Lama responded, “I had said back in 1969, that it is up to Tibetan people whether the institution of the Dalai Lama continued in the future or not.”
