HHDL-With-StudentsLondon: - The spiritual leader of Tibet, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will be arriving in Britain on 14 June for a ten day visit to share his beliefs of non-violence, dialogue and compassion particularly with the young people of this country.

Specifically His Holiness will be talking to younger audiences at the Manchester Arena (16 June), University of Westminster, London (19 June), and the London School of Economics and Political Science (20 June). The Dalai Lama will also engage with young people at the events in Leeds (15 June), the Usher Hall, Edinburgh (22 June), Caird Hall, Dundee (22 June) and at the Eden Court Theatre, Inverness (23 June).

The 1989 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate will be presenting Youth Compassion Awards to a young person aged between 10 - 24 in Manchester (16 June), London (19 June) and Edinburgh (22 June).

Thubten Samdup, the Dalai Lama's London-based Representative, said: "The Dalai Lama has called for this to be a ‘century of dialogue and peace', urging the world's youth to realise their potential as catalysts who can bring about a better world which they avidly hope to inhabit. The Dalai Lama will convey this message to those attending the Stand Up and Be The Change youth event (free for those 25 and under) in Manchester on 16 June.

The fact that the public talks at the Royal Albert Hall (19 June), Edinburgh, Dundee and Inverness sold out so quickly is a testament to the appeal that the Dalai Lama enjoys across the country.

Those interested in hearing this universally recognised symbol of peace and tolerance can still do so at the Manchester Arena from 16 to 18 June.

In addition the Dalai Lama will also be speaking on ‘Ethics in Business' to business leaders in Leeds (15 June), meeting Tibetan, Nepalese and Mongolian Buddhist communities, meeting with religious leaders and attending inter faith prayers in Westminster Abbey (20 June), and meeting with Parliamentarians at Westminster and in Edinburgh.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama's last visit to the UK was in May 2012 to receive the Templeton Prize. During the visit last month, the Dalai Lama also met with the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams, the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister.
