Hi Willem! Glad to know that you find our project interesting.
Now we are trying to make an Animation movie on the life of His Holiness. I will keep you updated on the progress.
As for the delivery to the Netherlands, I think Amazon UK can handle that.

I saw His Holiness visiting Europe on TV. I am concerned that he has lost a lot of weight recently...

Dear Eiji, that's great. I'm very interested. How can i get a copy to the Netherlands? Last wednesday i met His Holiness in Brussels while he was debriefing his people living in Belgium and the Netherlands. About 800 Tibetans had gathered to learn about the present situation.

I am publishing a graphic novel on His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Graphic adaptation about the true stories on his country, people, struggle, and his non-violence.

Pune, November 08 “India and Tibet share a teacher-disciple relationship, and if a disciple suffers, the teacher is responsible for it,” observed Dalai Lama, Tibetan leader. The Dalai Lama was in the city on Saturday to inaugurate the Gita Mandir at Sadhu Vaswani Mission. He also attended the concluding day of the 42nd Sarvodaya Samaj Sammelan.

Speaking at the Mission’s function, he spoke about human relations to politics. The spiritual leader said that Tibet changed into a civilised society only when India’s message of love reached there. “Teachings of Buddha gave direction to the life of Tibetans. So, even if China has substantial control over our land, the people there look up to India for support and love,” he said.

He urged that while supporting the cause of Tibet’s liberation, ecological, cultural and humanitarian grounds should be given more importance than politics. Stressing on a friendly India, China relationship, he said, “Genuine friendship between India and China will not only make the world a safer place but also help in Tibet liberation. People have had a century of bloodshed and killing and now they have realised the importance of peace. World peace will be achieved only when one practices inner peace.”

The disarmament may also mean to practice forgiveness and spiritual reconciliation. “Dialogue can help us avoid many conflicts at home and also beyond borders,” he said. While felicitating the Dalai Lama on the occasion, J P Vaswani said, “The Dalai Lama is humble yet strong enough to stand against a mighty nation like China.”
At the Sarvodaya Samaj Sammelan, the Dalai Lama highlighted India’s long history of non violence and tolerance. “India should strive to spread these values throughout the world,” he said.

The Dalai Lama spoke about his two-point programme that should be emphasised upon — the first one is Ahimsa and the second one is promotion of religious harmony. He said, “It is gladdening to see that even after so many years, Gandhiji’s values, ideology and principles are deep rooted in the Indian way of life. It is nice to see that in India people continue to practice non-violence despite many hardships and struggles.”

The Tibet Connection radio program is a wonderful resource. The variety of programing has something for everyone. I hope people will go to the site and listen to the new program and the archived programs. I just listened to Robert Thurmans "Why Tibet Matters" and I couldn't agree more that activists and Buddhists practioners could learn a lot from each other.
