The Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama today confirmed that discussions between the Dalai Lama and a senior US Government delegation took place in Dharamsala on September 13 and 14. The delegation was led by Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, and included Maria Otero, Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs (designated to serve concurrently as Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues) and other US Government officials.
According to a statement posted on the official website of His Holiness the Dalai Lama (https://www.dalailama.com/news/432/htm), Ms. Jarrett personally conveyed the commitment of President Obama “to support the Tibetan people in protecting their distinct religious, linguistic, and cultural heritage and securing respect for their human rights and civil liberties” as well as the US President’s commendation for the Dalai Lama’s consistency in seeking genuine autonomy for Tibetans within the People’s Republic of China through his middle way approach.”
This is a tremendous sign of true pursuit of peace extended by the U.S. President in his wisdom. Oh, that the nation of Tibet would arise in the midst of its oppressor, China.
religion and politic can not mix
look around u can see many example
Its hard for them to mix but if it benefits people and some learn about the Dalai Lamas teachings isn’t that a real gain? I wrote a post on transcending suffering recently which is Buddhisms central concept on my blog. https://richardshelmerdine.com/blog/2009/09/29/acceptance-of-pain-and-transcending-suffering/
