Dharamsala, May 16 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama will meet the Prime Minister of Denmark during his two day visit to the country at the end of this month, Voice of Tibet radio service reported yesterday, citing a 'reliable' source who did not want to be named.
Lakha Rinpoche of Tibet Charity, which is one of the organizers of His Holiness’ visit, told the radio service that he received an email from a journalist indicating that the Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen will meet the Tibetan leader at the former’s residence on May 29 but the exact time for the meeting is not known at the moment.
During his two day visit to the Scandinavian country, the 1989 Nobel peace laureate will give teachings on Nagarjuna's Commentary on Bodhicitta (jangchup semdrel) & Kamalashila's The Middling Stages of Meditation (gomrim barpa). His Holiness will also give a public talk on Peace Through Inner Peace.
Lakha Rinpoche will lead a long life prayer offering to His Holiness the Dalai Lama (Tenshug) by the Tibetans residing in Denmark. His Holiness will also preside over a press conference and meet with members of the Danish parliamentary group for Tibet.
His Holiness will also visit Netherlands where he was invited to visit the Dutch parliament. China earlier warned Dutch MPs not to invite the Dalai Lama to visit parliament but Dutch MPs went ahead with the invitation despite the warning from China that the visit would harm relations between the two nations.
After Netherlands, His Holiness will visit Paris, France, where he is likely to receive the Paris citizen of honour. He will give a public talk on Ethics and Society
