(TibetanReview.net, Oct10, 2016) – Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, is to separately meet with a group of Parliamentarians and Tibet campaign supporters from the Baltic States, and also with a few Russian intellectuals during his visit to the Latvia’s capital Riga over Oct 10-11. He is visiting Latvia, Switzerland, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Italy from Oct 8 to 24 to give religious teachings and public talks.

In the Czech capital Prague he will give a public talk on Secular Ethics. It will be a part of this year’s Forum 2000 and will be held at the Lucerna Palace over Oct 16-19. The Forum, founded in 1996, brings together Nobel laureates, former and current political leaders, business leaders and other individuals, whose common denominative is experience with bearing responsibility. It seeks to “map the globalization process and to note its positive results as well as the perils encountered by an increasingly interconnected world.”

While in Riga, the Dalai Lama will give a religious teaching which is being organized by the Save Tibet Foundation (Moscow) and Saglabasim Tibetu (Riga). Russia has been denying visa for the Dalai Lama over a number of years due to pressure from China despite repeated pleas from his devotees in the country. The foundation has been organizing his teachings in Latvia over the past several years because of it.

Over Oct 12-14, the Dalai Lama will visit Switzerland where on Oct 14 he will give a series of religious teachings and will be given a long-life offering in Zurich by the Tibetan Communities of Switzerland & Liechtenstein.

Leaving Switzerland on Oct 15, the Dalai Lama will next give a give a public talk on Secular Ethics at the National Tennis Center, Slovakia, on Oct 16.

Over Oct 21-22, the Dalai Lama will give religious teachings in Milan Italy, as well as a public talk on ‘The Source of Genuine Happiness’, with the events being organized by the Ghe Pel Ling Institute for Tibetan Buddhist Studies.

The Dalai Lama returns on India on Oct 24.
