He thanked the members of the Parliament for their support and stressed the importance to continue the special friendship between the Hessen people and the Tibetans.
Then he emphasized the importance of compassion and needs for more female leaders in politics. His Holiness said more female politicians will be good for the society, as the female instincts are more compassionate than men.
In the morning, His Holiness addressed over 100 people - many of them were social workers. He spoke on How to live a meaningful life.
Then he met with 70 Chinese scholars, journalist and democracy advocates from five countries in Europe.
His Holiness began his address by saying, “My Chinese friends, Mongolian and Uyghur friends, I am happy to meet you all today.”

The meeting provided an opportunity for the Chinese friends to ask questions and clarify misunderstandings, he said.
China has various minorities and His Holiness said every effort must be made for a harmonious relationship amongst the minorities. However, repression creates greater grievances.
For harmonious relationship acceptance of truth is very important and critical. For friendship to last, there must be confidence and transparency, he said.
Referring to the Tibetan issue, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said that China does not seem to be willing to resolve the Tibetan issue.
“We are not seeking independence but autonomy. It would be helpful for the mainland people to hear this,” he said.

Ideally, education is the principal tool of human growth, essential for transforming the unlettered child into a mature and responsible adult. Yet everywhere today, both in the developed world and the developing world, we can see that formal education is in serious trouble. Classroom instruction has become so routinized and pat that children often consider school an exercise in patience rather than an adventure in learning.
This book studies the role of exports in Vietnam’s rapid growth since the country implemented a comprehensive reform (Doimoi) in 1986 to transform itself from a centrally command system to a ‘socialist-oriented market economy’. One central finding is that Vietnam’s growth since Doi-Moi has indeed been export-led as the second-tier NICs of Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, but that many of the characteristics of Vietnam’s exports are different to those of these NICs. Another key finding is that Vietnam’s growth since 2000 has been extensive rather than intensive with high GDP growth driven by rapid growth in factor supplies, especially labour, with low growth in non-agricultural productivity. Such a development path will not support the rate of long-term growth that Vietnam requires to achieve its development objectives, and major policy changes are necessary.
This book provides useful insights in Vietnam’s economy and is a good reference for economic researchers, postgraduate

The 11th Avenue resident in Oakland's Eastlake neighborhood was simply feeling hopeful in 2009 when he went to an Ace hardware store, purchased a 2-foot-high stone Buddha and installed it on a median strip in a residential area at 11th Avenue and 19th Street.
He hoped that just maybe his small gesture would bring tranquillity to a neighborhood marred by crime: dumping, graffiti, drug dealing, prostitution, robberies, aggravated assault and burglaries.
