Truth, violently suppressed in Tibet: Dalai Lama
"Truth is being violently suppressed inside Tibet right now…truth is losing to might and power but there is nothing much we can do," he said at a gathering of Tibetans on the concluding day of the five-day Monlam Chenmo (great prayer festival) in Dharamsala on Thursday.
"Although violence and oppression may appear powerful and decisive but it is only temporary. Violence can never bring a lasting and long term resolution to any problem…truth cannot be destroyed," the Dalai Lama said. Earlier on Wednesday, Dalai Lama`s followers organised a special prayer meet to pray for the longevity of the Tibetan spiritual leader in Dharamsala.
