ATLANTA, Georgia: His Holiness Dalai Lama began his second day of the US visit with a meeting with members of the China-Tibet Initiative at the Emory University.

A Chinese student gave a brief introduction explaining that initially five students had agreed the need to arrange meetings between Chinese and Tibetan students and that their number has grown to eighty. He said getting to know each other was the most important thing and suggested theirs was a model for conflict resolution among students.

Greeting the nearly 50 students as brothers and sisters, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said: “Whenever we have the opportunity to improve things we should take it. On the other hand, no matter how difficult it may be, we should always to deal with problems we face in a non-violent way.”

He recalled the unraveling of the confidence and optimism with which he had returned to Tibet from Beijing in the summer of 1955 after meeting Chairman Mao Zedong and other Chinese leaders. Resentment of reforms forcefully imposed on Tibetans without regard for their different conditions in 1956 and 1957 led to the crisis in Lhasa in 1959 in the course of which His Holiness left. There was hope in 1980 when Hu Yaobang took a more conciliatory stance, which eventually came to nothing. His Holiness explained the origins and development of the Middle Way Approach.
Asked what Chinese and Tibetan students could learn from each other he said he didn’t know, but the main thing was to make clear that Tibetans are not anti-Chinese.

As to what he would say if he were to meet President Xi Jinping, he said he didn’t know, but will decide when that happens. He mentioned friends who suggest that Xi Jinping is more realistic and expressed admiration for his tackling corruption.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who is an honorary professor of Emory University, then proceeded to the Glenn Memorial Auditorium, where twelve hundred students and staff were gathered to listen to a dialogue between him and President James Wagner on the topic of Secular Ethics.
