Meeting The Dalai Lama
Following a multi faith service in Westminster Abbey, His Holiness The Dalai Lama went to the magnificent setting of the Jerusalem Chamber, where, courtesy of the Dean of Westminster, some 50 descendants of those who had travelled and worked in Tibet before the Chinese invasion were invited to hear His Holiness speak. Although now no longer the political leader of Tibetans in exile, his plea to the world is for peace and understanding in this troubled area. We each had an opportunity to exchange a few words with him, and I left a photograph of my father, in disguise, in Tibet in 1913.
It was a very moving and unforgettable meeting, thanks to the organisation by Tibet House.
