Audience with the Dalai Lama

Photograph of Carles Torner, on the right, executive director of PEN International (2014-20), and Jennifer Clement, centre, president of PEN International (2015-), at an audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala on 4 May 2017. Torner and Clement visited Dharamsala as a delegation from PEN International, meeting with the Tibetan Writers Abroad Centre and political figures to discuss PEN’s support for Tibetan writers. During this audience the delegates spoke about, amongst other things, PEN’s ongoing work for Tibetan writers in exile and their forthcoming ‘Make Space’ campaign, to which Dalai Lama said he gave “full support”, as well as The Universal Declaration of Linguistic Rights – a copy of which can be seen lying on the table before Torner. The Dalai Lama particularly focused on discussing how to prevent the destruction on Tibetan land and rivers, which, he stressed, give life to many Tibetan people.

Audiencia con el dalái lama

Fotografía de Carles Torner, derecha, director ejecutivo de PEN Internacional (2014-20), y Jennifer Clement, centro, presidenta de PEN Internacional (2015-), en una audiencia con el dalái lama en Dharamsala, el 4 de mayo de 2017. Torner y Clement visitaron Dharamsala como una delegación de PEN Internacional, y conocieron a miembros del Centro de Escritores Tibetanos en el Extranjero y a figuras políticas para discutir el apoyo de PEN a los escritores tibetanos. Durante la audiencia, los delegados hablaron de, entre otras cosas, el trabajo de PEN para los escritores tibetanos en el estranjero dentro de la campaña 'Make Space', a la que el dalái lama expresó su «apoyo total», o de la Delcación Universal de los Derechos Lingüísticos (puede verse una copia de ella en la mesa, delante de Torner). El dalái lama se centró sobre todo en como evitar la destrucción de tierra y ríos tibetanos, los que, insistió, dan vida a las gentes tibetanas.
