At a gathering in Prague’s Lucerna Palace the Tibetan spiritual leader, who is here at the invitation of the Forum 2,000 Foundation, thanked the Czech people for their support of Tibet. He said he had relinquished his political role years ago and now only strove for the preservation of Tibet’s culture and environment. “Your support of Tibet and the culture of peace is important not only for the six million Tibetans, but for the whole world,” the Dalai Lama told the gathering. Interest in his lecture at Lucerna was immense, with a queue of people forming all the way to Wenceslas Square. On Monday the Dalai Lama was greeted by a crowd of around one thousand people on Prague’s Hradčany Square.
