Dharamsala, Sep. 18 (IANS) -- Tibetan spiritual
leader the Dalai Lama has reached Hungary after a
gap of 10 years where he will deliver lectures on
the Buddha's teachings and address parliament, a
statement issued here said Saturday.

'The Dalai Lama was received at the Ferihegy
airport in Budapest Friday,' according to a post
on the website of the Tibetan government-in-exile here.

The city of Budapest will confer the honorary
citizenship award on the Dalai Lama, it said.

He will visit parliament Sep 20 at the invitation
of the Hungary parliament's Tibet group where he
will address invited members of parliament and other guests.

This is his seventh visit to Hungary. The first one was in 1982.

 From Hungary, the Nobel laureate will travel to Germany Sep 21.

The Dalai Lama, 75, along with many of his
supporters fled Tibet and took refuge in India
when Chinese troops moved in and took control of Lhasa in 1959.

Since then he has been heading the Tibetan government-in-exile from here.
