Your Excellency:

I am deeply saddened by the loss of so many lives and property as a result of the earthquake that struck the capital city Port-au-Prince on Tuesday.

I extend my sympathy and heartfelt condolences to all those families who have been directly affected by what I understand is the worst quake in two centuries in the history of Haiti.

I offer my prayers for those who have lost their lives in this tragedy and condolences to their families and others affected by this natural disaster.

With my prayers.

The Dalai Lama

Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, HP, India, 30 November 2016 - When His Holiness the Dalai Lama met about 1000 pilgrims from Tibet today, many in traditional attire, their faces bright with anticipation, he told them that since they had come to India on pilgrimage or to visit relatives, he thought he would talk to them about Buddhism before they returned home. “Buddhism spread the length and breadth of Tibet,” he told them, “but not that many people really understand what Buddhism is about.”
