While going on with the teachings to the gathering of around 8000 people mainly consisting of Tibetan youth, His Holiness said that the Tibetan youth has the responsibility of preserving the Tibetan language and culture. Especially he stressed that the Tibetan youths in free countries should not let the sacrifices made by Tibetans inside Tibet go to waste.
His Holiness also stressed to the audience that ‘if you love me, don’t let me die sadly’, asking to work towards his teachings so that in the future when the time comes, he can leave this world in peace.
“At the end he appealed to everyone present to share the idea of the oneness of humanity with ten friends, calculating that if they each did the same the result would be to spread the message far and wide.” reported the official website of OHHDL.
“Although he declared that the teachings were over, His Holiness remained in the temple while first the visiting Thai Abbot, his monks and lay-followers and then all the Tibetan students had their photographs taken with him in groups. After that, greeting friends and well-wishers as he went, he returned to his residence.” it added.
