Lions Roar : July 2017
mation of Tibet into a zone of peace, abandonment of Chinese popula- tion transfer into Tibet, respect for basic human rights, environmental protection and the cessation of nuclear waste disposal in Tibet, and the commencement of negotiations on the future status of Tibet. The following year, during a time of violent suppression in Tibet, the Dalai Lama addressed the European Parliament. What became known as the Strasbourg Proposal called for Tibet to become a self- governing democratic political entity in association with the People’s Republic of China. “Only dialogue,” the Dalai Lama told the European Parliament, “and a willingness to look with honesty and clarity at the reality of Tibet can lead to a viable situation.” On December 10, 1989, when he was fifty-four, the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The committee said that he had been recognized because he had “consistently opposed the use of violence” and “advocated peaceful solutions based upon tolerance and mutual respect in order to preserve the historical and cultural heritage of his people.’’ The man born Lhamo Thondup in a poor farming family in north- eastern Tibet was now a figure on the world stage. In the years that followed, the man who describes himself as just a “simple Buddhist monk” would go on to become perhaps the most loved and admired person on the planet. ♦ In 1988, the Dalai Lama makes an historic address to the European Parliament, bringing the Tibetan cause to the world’s attention. He proposes a self-governing democracy in Tibet. The Dalai Lama makes his first trip outside Asia in 1973, visiting eleven countries and meeting Pope Paul VI at the Vatican. Parallel to his increasing prominence as a statesman, the Dalai Lama becomes renowned worldwide as a Buddhist teacher. Here he offers the Kalachakra initiation to thousands in Los Angeles. The Dalai Lama receives the Nobel Peace Prize. In his acceptance speech, he says, “The prize is a recognition of the true value of altruism, love, compassion, and nonviolence, which I try to practice in accord with the teachings of the Buddha.” PHOTOS:THETIBETMUSEUMANDDONFARBER(BOTTOMCENTER) LION’S ROAR | JULY 2017 67
