TAMING THE RED DRAGON AT BRITAIN’S GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is visiting Britain for a week( from June 29 to July 05) to attend Glastonbury Festival and will be speaking in London about Tibetan Buddhism. As world embraces basic concepts of Voluntary Simplicity, Red China’s obession to dominate global markets will be contained. The dangers imposed by Red China’s Economic Expansionism can be resisted by the practice of the noble Eightfold Path; 1. Right Views, 2. Right Intentions, 3. Right Speech, 4. Right Conduct, 5. Right Livelihood, 6. Right Effort, 7. Right Mindfulness and 8. Right Concentration. In the years ahead, Britain, United States and other nations will be left with no political alternatives to face challenge of Red China’s economic power and dominance of world markets. Tibetan Buddhism can offer tools to reject compulsions of mass consumerism and seek natural lifestyles consistent with peace, harmony, and tranquility that people desire to experience in their personal lives.

Tibet: Dalai Lama to Visit Glastonbury Festival in Britain Just Before Chinese President’s First Visit

The Dalai Lama will visit Britain on the occasion of the Glastonbury Festival, where he was invited to deliver a speech. During his visit to Britain, he will also talk about Buddhism in London. Already in 2012, Britain and China had disputes as a consequence of a meeting between David Cameron and the Dalai Lama, as China considers him as a dangerous nationalist leader.

Below is an article published by Reuters

Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama will visit Britain next week [week from 29 June to 5 July] and again in September but will not meet any officials, his office said on Thursday, just ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s trip to the country in October.
The Dalai Lama will speak at the Glastonbury Festival – one of Europe’s largest music festivals – during his June 27-30 trip, said Wangdue Tsering, London-based secretary of the Office of Tibet, one of Dalai Lama’s representative offices in Europe.
The Dalai Lama is also due to give a talk on Buddhism in Aldershot, a town to the southwest of London.
Wangdue Tsering told Reuters that the Dalai Lama would not meet any officials during his trip and that his office did not request any meetings.
His September trip will include a public talk, but no other details have been released yet.
Beijing denounces the Dalai Lama as a dangerous separatist who wants an independent Tibet. He denies espousing violence and says he only wants genuine autonomy for his Himalayan homeland.
In 2012, British Prime Minister David Cameron had to put his trip to China on hold after Beijing took offense at him holding a meeting with the Dalai Lama.
President Xi’s October state visit is the first to Britain in a decade by a Chinese head of state.
China has ruled Tibet with an iron fist since troops “peacefully liberated” the region in 1950. The Dalai Lama fled into exile in India in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule.
Representatives of the Nobel Peace laureate held rounds of talks with China until 2010, but formal dialogue has stalled amid leadership changes in Beijing and a crackdown in Tibet.
