Truly blessed by an audience with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at his residence after a successful Tibetan Youth Congress 18th General Body Meeting held at Dharamshala. He spoke for an hour and encouraged us to be committed and dedicated as always. He has gone through all the 22 resolutions we have adopted upon 9 agendas and advised us to put our effort into preserving and protecting the rich Tibetan language.
Tibetan Youth Congress was formally established at a conference of Tibetan Youths in Dharamshala on 7th October 1970 attended by 315 delegates from various Tibetan Settlements in India and Nepal. His Holiness graced thrice in a week-long meeting and advised the attendees, “Despite facing different difficulties and challenges, establish your will and determination like a mountain.”
Since then, we have been living up to his guiding principles and contributing to the just cause of Tibet in many ways.
