Tibetans Visit Dalai Lama

China has taken a few small steps towards creating a more peaceful working relationship with the Dalai Lama, by allowing 200 Chinese nationals to attend a prayer meeting with the exiled Dalai Lama in India. China has also been issuing more visas to Tibetans and ethnic Chinese over the past couple years, allowing followers to pursue their spirituality through Buddhism in India.
China lets 200 Tibetans visit Dalai Lama
"Despite that, the majority of Tibetans loyal to the Dalai Lama, instead of Beijing, continue to be denied passports. Last November the Dalai Lama said talks with Beijing so far had done little to ease a "very repressive" atmosphere in Tibet." Telegraph

Here's a couple Dalai Lama quotes..
"Through difficult experiences, life sometimes becomes more meaningful."
Dalai Lama
"It is the enemy who can truly teach us to practice the virtues of compassion and tolerance."
Dalai Lama

Also, here's part of a prayer by His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet..
Humble sentient beings, tormented by sufferings without cease, Completely suppressed by seemingly endless and terribly intense, negative deeds, May all their fears from unbearable war, famine, and disease be pacified, To freely breathe an ocean of happiness and well-being.
And particularly the pious people of the Land of Snows who, through various means, Are mercilessly destroyed by barbaric hordes on the side of darkness, Kindly let the power of your compassion arise, To quickly stem the flow of blood and tears.

Dalai Lama

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
Dalai Lama

The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.

Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
Dalai Lama
