(TibetanReview.net, Feb28’16) – Nearly a hundred Tibetan scholars had gathered at the Gyutoe Monastery in Dharamshala, India, on Feb 25 to take part in or attend a four-day symposium on the life and vision of Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama.

The event has been organized by the Gelug Tenshug and Gratitude Committee set up last year to mark the 80thbirthday of the Dalai Lama. It is a part of the committee’s year-long agenda to spread the words and works of the Dalai Lama.

Those who spoke at the opening session included Tai Situ Rinpoche, the head of Palpung Sherab Ling, and Kirti Rinpoche, former minister of the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala and head of Kirti Monastery.

More than 20 scholars from different schools of Tibetan Buddhism, professors from Tibetan colleges, and representatives from educational institutions were scheduled to present papers on the Dalai Lama’s work on education, politics, democracy, challenges, and religious harmony on the first day.
