Your Excellency,

I am deeply saddened and shocked by the series of deadly attacks in different parts of Mumbai that has resulted in the loss of many precious lives and injury to many others since last night. I would like to convey my deep condolences to you and through you to the members of the bereaved families as well as to all those affected by these dastard acts.

I have always admired the resilience of the people of India and have no doubt that they will not be deterred by such anti-human activities. I would like to reiterate my solidarity with the Indian people, particularly the people of Mumbai, as you confront the menace of terrorism and violence.

With my prayers,

Yours sincerely

The Dalai Lama
