A Royal Welcome

Shankar: Shankar's Weekly, October 14, 1973
"The Dalai Lama, who is currently on a tour of some European countries, is reported to have expressed the hope that he would be able to return to Tibet soon."
(Shankar / Shankar's Weekly / October 14, 1973)

The Dalai Lama has extensively travelled around the world. He is said to have visited more than 50 countries. His first visit to Europe was in 1973 when he met the Pope and the Irish President. For the first time during this visit, he expressed his desire to return to Tibet. In 1985, a trip nearly materialised. Today, he continues to live in exile in Dharamshala (Himachal Pradesh).
