(TibetanReview.net, Aug16, 2018) – The Dalai Lama said Aug 14 that he was looking forward to taking a good rest after 45 days of touring Ladakh and visiting Goa and Bengaluru beginning Jul 3. He has busy overseas schedules through much of September.

“My tour has been very successful. I was able to do much service as I have always wished to. I ask all the Tibetans not to worry. Now that I am back here, I am looking forward to taking a good rest,” the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) quoted him as saying on his arrival at the Kangra Airport at Gaggal.

Partly to get away from the severity of the wetness of the monsoon, and with a hope also to get some rest while carrying out religiously useful services, the Dalai Lama spent Jul 3 to Aug 3 in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir state.

Apart from taking part in his 83rd birthday function on Jul 6 and giving religious teachings and visiting educational institutions, the Dalai Lama received a written commitment of working towards harmonious coexistence from the Buddhist and Muslim communities in Zanskar.

In Goa, he was a keynote speaker at the Silver Jubilee function of the Goa Institute of Management on Aug 9.

In Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) the Dalai Lama took part in a Thank you Karnataka event, organised by the five major Tibetan settlements in South India. It was a part of the CTA’s yearlong Thank You India series of programmes for this year. Chief Minister of HD Kumaraswamy of Karnataka was among those who took part in the function.

The Dalai Lama has hectic schedules through most of September, with visits to Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland.
