His Holiness the Dalai Lama's second day of the
short visit to Wroclaw started with the meeting
with journalists. Questions focused again on
different aspects and dimensions of "solidarity"
- from individual to global level - which His
Holiness addressed through the frames of His
Holiness' three life commitments: to the
promotion of universal human values; dialogue,
respect and understanding between different
religious traditions; and the aspirations and rights of Tibetan people.

Later His Holiness met with high school students
from Wroclaw. After short introduction, focused
on the need of developing warm heart along with
the knowledge, intellect and professional skills
in order to turn new century into the age of
dialogue, peace and solidarity, His Holiness
answered several very sophisticated and
challenging questions ranging from the problem of
a loneliness in a modern, developed world to
philosophical subtleties of the notion of "nirvana".

Just before leaving for India, His Holiness met
with the leaders of different religious
traditions. Very warm and in times quite informal
exchanges were again a tribute to the
"solidarity" aspect of His Holiness' second main
commitment. "Solidarity" was not only the title
and main topic of the fifth visit of His Holiness
in Poland - as noticed by everybody, it
spontaneously accompanied him from the first till
last minute in Wroclaw filled with Tibetan flags,
flowers and cheering crowds wherever there was a
chance to catch a glimpse of His Holiness even for a few seconds.
