The Dalai Lama is to take part in the concluding
session of a conference to mark the centenary
celebration of Mahatma Gandhi's 'Hind Swaraj”
(Home Rule) in New Delhi on Nov 22. The
conference aims to highlight globally the
efficacy and universality of Gandhian vision of
swaraj and methods of nonviolence.

The participants will draw an action plan based
on the wisdom of Hind Swaraj, and their own
experiments with truth to chart a new paradigm
for progress that every individual, family and
society can follow in order to lessen the
violence of different forms and the impending
danger of ecological disaster, reported the exile
Tibetan government’s Tibet.net Nov 13.

It cited New Delhi-based Swaraj Peeth Trust,
which is organising the event in collaboration
with the Central University of Higher Tibetan
Studies, Saranath, Varanasi, as saying an action
plan to be drawn up by the participants would be
presented to the Dalai Lama with a request that
he take the leadership of a global movement of nonviolence, justice and peace.

The Kalon Tripa, Samdhong Rinpoche, is attending
the entire Nov 19-22 conference, to be held at Hotel Rajhans, Surajkund.
