Dalai Lama Awarded Honorary Citizenship Of Warsaw
The Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader, was made an honorary citizenship of Polish capital Warsaw on Wednesday.
"His Holiness (the Dalai Lama) was named an honorary citizen of Warsaw in a ceremony at the Royal Castle there Wednesday. He got the recognition for his campaign for Tibet's autonomy," Tenzin Taklha, joint secretary at the Dalai Lama's office, told.
In Poland, the Nobel laureate is already an honorary citizen of Wroclaw and has an honorary doctorate from the Jagiellonian University, he added.
The 74-year-old spiritual guru has travelled across the world to acquire support for "meaningful autonomy" for Tibet in spite of severe warnings by Beijing to foreign governments that receive visits from the Tibetan spiritual leader.
