(TibetanReview.net, Apr16, 2015) – Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on Apr 13 concluded a much applauded two-week visit to Japan during which he met and interacted with Japanese scientists, politicians, doctors, Buddhist communities from different countries, students and members of the general public. On the final day, he met separately with a group of Tibetans living in the country and a large audience of Taiwanese.

He called on the Tibetans to be good ambassadors of their ethnic traits of being warm-hearted while being constructive in criticisms for the purpose of improving things. On the issue of Tibet, he said international support was crucial and expressed confidence that change, being inevitable, will come.

To an audience of about 1,000 Taiwanese, the Dalai Lama said they should back up their interest in Buddhism with study. He pointed out that though 80 years old, he himself was still studying the works of the ancient Nalanda masters.
