On 6th July His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama turned 77, He has been an inspiration for millions. He is a symbol of peace, compassion and has been spreading the message of love all over the world. Born in Taktser, Tibet, in 1935, he was recognized as the 14th Dalai Lama. In 1950 He assumed complete political power. The Chinese occupation in 1959 led to the flight of the Tibetan leader who left Norbulingka palace, his summer residence, disguised as a soldier. Since then His Holiness has been working tirelessly for world peace and the Tibetan cause. Last year, He devolved all his political power to an elected leadership. The Tibetan people, both inside and outside of Tibet, shall remain ever grateful to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
To express this gratitude to His Holines, the Students for a Free Tibet-India organized a special musical concert “Come Home His Holiness” on 7th July 2012.
Dharamsala’s monsoon, as unpredictable as it can be, almost played a spoilsport with drizzles and splashes during the preparation. However, people turned out in huge numbers with enthusiasm to participate in this collective expression of tribute and wishes to His Holiness. The event turned out to be an ode to the leader who taught us how to fight for truth and be compassionate as well.
