July 2, 2009 - Dharamshala / Gyuto:

Former Union Minister and one of the most prominent supporters of the Tibetan cause, Mr. George Fernandes, met His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa at his Gyuto residence. Mr. Fernandes was accompanied by Ajay Singh, the former deputy union minister, along with his wife.
Early on June 23rd, a group of visiting Nepali Parliamentary Members met His Holiness in Gyuto. The party was comprised of six MPs, including two women and Siddharth Gautam, President of the Lumbini Foundation for Development & Peace.
According to Gautam, the Nepali Members of Parliament (MPs) are currently visiting Dharamsala to develop, in the long run, “a deeper understanding of the Tibetan issue and situation", and to "pave ways to bridge closer relations between the two communities”.
Gautam said his foundation had also been working to realize a “visit by His Holiness Karmapa” to Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha in Nepal.
Tseten Norbu, a member of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile, based in Nepal, was the one who coordinated the MPs' visit to Dharamsala.
