Message of His Holiness the Dalai Lama To Those Affected by Tibet Earthquake  

I am deeply saddened by the loss of life and property as a result of the earthquake that struck Damshung county and neighboring areas west of Lhasa on Monday, 6 October 2008.  

Our prayers go out to those who have lost their lives in this tragedy and offer condolences to their families and those affected by this natural disaster.  

I am exploring avenues to extend assistance as a token of my deep concern and solidarity with the people devastated by this earthquake.
