Dalai Lama is visiting Warsaw, the capital of the Republic of Poland,
from 27 to 29 July 2009. Tibetan spiritual leader's upcoming visit is
primarily at the invitation of the Mayor of Warsaw and the Warsaw City
Council to receive an honorary citizenship of Warsaw. Dalai Lama has
also accepted the invitation of the University of Warsaw to give a
public talk.
On 29 July the Mayor of Warsaw and Warsaw City Council will present
Dalai Lama with the Honorary Citizenship of Warsaw at a ceremony to be
held at the Royal Castle.
Dalai Lama will give a public talk at the University of Warsaw on ?Value
of Education & Universal Responsibility? to an audience of scholars,
students and other invited guests of the University followed by a
question and answer session. Dalai Lama will also visit the Warsaw
Rising Museum, the museum built in memory of and to honour the Warsaw
1944 Rising.
Besides the programmes hosted by the Warsaw City and University, he has
also accepted the request and invitation from Ven Dr Tenzin Jangchub to
open his Traditional Tibetan Herbal Health Clinic Co Ltd. His Holiness
will open the clinic in the afternoon of 28 July following his visit to
the Warsaw Rising Museum. The opening will be attended by Pawel
Trzcinski, President of the Polish Society on Health Communication and
Dr Konstanty Radziwill, President of European Chamber of Doctors amongst
other guests.
?The Polish people?s respect for the Dalai Lama and sympathy for the
just Tibetan cause is overwhelming and comes naturally from their own
experience of having suffered so much under foreign occupation and
totalitarian communist regime. The Warsaw City Council?s decision to
present His Holiness with the honorary citizenship clearly reflects the
popular public opinion in Poland to honour His Holiness and all the work
that he does for Tibet and humanity at large?,
Tsering Tashi, the Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the
Office of Tibet in London, said.
Dalai Lama will leave Warsaw for Germany on 29 July. Dalai Lama?s visit
to Poland next week will be his fourth following his earlier visits in
1993, 2000 and 2008.
