VIDEO: DALAI LAMA SPEAKS TO EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
oday His Holiness addressed the European Parliament, during his current visit to several countries and meetings with leaders.
The first part of his speech dealt with his mission of promoting human values and religious harmony, with much emphasis on the role of women's contributions and praise for the Parliament's large number of women MEPs. Following this, he turned to the Tibet - China issue.

I noticed that Phayul website posted what ought to be the complete text of the speech by H.H. the Dalai Lama. But I am thinking this must be the text that was passed out to the members of the European Parliament, and not the words that were actually spoken. He didn't actually speak from a prepared text. In any case, here is a link:
Do you know of a complete transcription of the spoken words?
I also wondered where the video came from. I wanted to see the first part, but couldn't locate it anywhere.
Dan, I think Phayul does have the complete official text, it looks the same as that posted on HHDL's website:
Address by HHDL to the European Parliament
The video actually came from me, I captured it from satellite EU broadcast. I'm very sorry I can't offer the earlier part as I deleted the raw capture afterwards. I needed to make space for HM the King's speech yesterday (which didn't materialize anyway, as explained in the next post).
The official speech of HH as transcribed was not actually delivered. Had it been, I probably would have tried to cut 3 or 4 videos to cover the whole thing.
Sorry about that.
