Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, India - In a letter congratulating Scott Morrison, Prime Minister of Australia, on his Coalition Party’s victory in Australia’s parliamentary elections, His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote:
“Over the last four decades I have travelled the length and breadth of Australia and have been deeply touched by the openness and warmth of people from all walks of life. I have also been encouraged by their enthusiasm and interest in my effort to promote a sense of oneness of humanity and closer inter-religious harmony.
“I take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude to the Australian people for their interest and concern for the present situation of the Tibetan people.”
He ended by wishing Mr. Morrison every success in meeting the challenges that lie ahead in fulfilling Australians’ hopes and aspirations.
