Dalai Lama expected to visit Botswana in August

Dalai-Lama1(TibetanReview.net, May06, 2017) In a rare visit to Africa, Tibets exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, is set for a three-day sojourn in Botswana in August, according to the countrys APA News agency May 4.

The report cited the visits organizer, a non-profit group called Mind and Dialogue in Botswana, as saying the Dalai Lama will visit alongside African humanitarian and spiritual leaders, scholars and healers over Aug 17-19.

The report cited a statement from the group as saying the Dalai Lama and international neuroscientists would discuss the principle of Ubuntu (humanity and compassion) during five sessions, followed by a public address in the University of Botswanas new state-of-the-art arena.

The organizers have been quoted as saying the conference will define “humanity through our connections with one another, Ubuntu is expressed as I am because you are, a view that is reflected also in the Dalai Lamas teachings.”

China is sure to object and exert pressure on Botsawa to prevent the visit. The report noted that South Africa had previously denied the Dalai Lama a visa for fear of angering China.

The Dalai Lama seeks genuine autonomy for Tibet. But China insists it is already autonomous and accuses him of seeking independence.
