living inside Tibet for keeping up their
sincerity and determination. His Holiness said
though Tibetans are physically living under the
repression of the Chinese government, but they
are very much united in their hearts to struggle
for their rights and truth of Tibet's cause.

Describing the cultural heritage of Tibet as
precious gem of the world, His Holiness told
Tibetans to carefully it in order to preserve the
rich tradition. His Holiness also underlined that
Tibetans must excel in both traditional Tibetan studies and modern education.

world not to squander their time and
opportunities in taking the responsibility as
Tibetans inside Tibet pin their hopes on them.
