(TibetanReview.net, Feb14, 2015) – Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on Feb 12 met in Copenhagen with a group of parliamentarians who together belonged to all the eight political parties represented in the Danish Parliament. He expressed his appreciation to them for their support and concern over the human rights situation in Tibet.

He also sought their support for an expert assessment of the current ecological situation in Tibet which he felt had severely deteriorated under Chinese rule due to overexploitation. He added that Asia’s major rivers rise in Tibet and affect the lives of 1 billion people downstream.

He also expressed concern for the well-being of the Tibetan culture, which, as a culture of peace and compassion, is something China also needs. He added that during a recent meeting, Chinese writers and intellectuals told him that moral standards in China were lower than they had been in the past 5000 years.

The morning meeting with the MPs took place before the Dalai Lama began his religious teaching in the Bella Conference Center, beginning with an introduction to Buddhism and continuing with the ‘Eight Verses for Training the Mind’.
