Message by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the Beijing Olympics

August 5th 2008

I would like to offer my greetings to the People's Republic of China, the organizers and the athletes participating in the forthcoming Olympic Games in Beijing.

Right from the time of China's application to hold the Olympic Games, I have supported China's right to host the Games.  This is a moment of great pride to the 1.3 billion Chinese people.  These Games should contribute to promoting the Olympic spirit of friendship, openness and peace.

I send my prayers and good wishes for the success of the event.

THE DALAI LAMA
