Last weekend H.H. the Dalai Lama visited the Netherlands. On Sunday May 12-th he gave two lectures in the Ahoy halls in Rotterdam: in the morning a buddhist teaching and in the afternoon a public talk. Just before the start of his buddhist teaching, I was honoured to welcome H.H. the Dalai Lama by singing the mantra Om Mani Peme Hum. After we did sing this traditional buddhist mantra for him, he arrived on the stage for his teaching. The pictures give an impression of this event. The pictures are publiced at the Facebookpages of ‘Maitreya Instituut’ and ‘Bezoek Z.H. Dalai Lama Nederland”. The photographers are Netty Leleulya, Jeppe Schilder, Jurjen Donkers and Marlies Bosch.
