Will he? Maybe when he lifts the Dorje Shugden ban, China will let him into Tibet one day.

Dalai Lama says he will return to Tibet someday
DALAI LAMA


It is a dream of the Tibetan people to see the Dalai Lama safely return home to Tibet someday. Gerry Moriarty has reported for The Irish Times on April 19, 2013, Dalai Lama says he expects to return to his native Tibet someday. While on a recent visit to Ireland the Dalai Lama said he hopes to return home to Tibet someday. The Tibet Sun has also covered this story, Dalai Lama says he expects to return to his native Tibet someday.

When Marian Shanleywest from Drumlin Media TV in Cavan told the Dalai Lama she had a list of queries she wanted to put to him, but really all she wanted was a hug, the Dalai Lama showed that he is a man of humor and infectious warmth. He said, “OK, but no kiss.” He was concerned lipstick would get on his face. Shanleywest than embraced the exiled Tibetan Buddhist leader and also hugged Richard Moore, the man who was responsible for bringing him to Derry in its year as UK City of Culture. And than the former Irish News political editor Billy Graham, who has been a longtime student of Buddhism, wanted to know if the Dalai Lama thought he would ever see his native Tibet again. The Dalai Lama said, “Definitely in my lifetime I will have the opportunity to return to Tibet."

His Holiness the Dalai Lama than shared a special message for young people. He said, “This century should be the century of dialogue. The last century was the century of violence…Whenever you face problems, try to solve them through dialogue and talk.” He expressed the feeling that the peace process remained the only way forward and he warned against self-centredness, while urging people in Northern Ireland to “come together with a desire and hope for peace and a harmonious society."

Mr Moore, who is head and founder of Children in Crossfire, said this was an “extraordinary” event. He commented that the Dalai Lama was an “icon of peace, compassion and forgiveness”. The Dalai Lama replied Mr Moore was his “hero”. Mr Moore was blinded in 1972 when struck by a rubber bullet fired by a British soldier, whom he later forgave.
