(TibetanReview.net, Nov18, 2017) – Although having designated emissaries for much of his overseas engagements, citing increased tiredness since last year, the Dalai Lama continues to maintain a hectic schedule and on Nov 17 left Dharamshala for a weeklong lecture tour to New Delhi, Bhubanewshwar and Kolkata in India.

He is to give lectures at the Salwan Public School and Smile Foundation in New Delhi on Nov 18 and 19 respectively.

The 82-year-old exiled spiritual leader of Tibet will then fly to Bhubaneshwar, capital of the state of Orissa, on Nov 20 to speak at the Kalinga Institute of Social Science (KISS) the following day.

And on Nov 22 he will visit Kolkata, capital of West Bengal state, to deliver a talk on ‘Revival of Ancient Indian Knowledge’ at the Indian Chamber of Commerce on Nov 23.

He will be back at his exile home in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh state, on Nov 26.
