"The sage do not wash away sins with water, neither do they remove sentient beings‘ suffering with their hands; nor can they transfer their own realisations to others. They liberate beings by revealing the truth of suchness."

Lord Buddha

The mayor of Klagenfurt Christian Scheider awarded His Holiness the Gold Medal of the city of Klagenfurt on May 18 and the Governor of Carinthia Gerhard Dörfler awarded him the Gold Medal of the state of Carinthia on May 20. In the course of His Holiness’ visit there were numerous encounters between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and political and religious dignitaries, such as the Austrian chancellor Werner Faymann and Cardinal Christoph Schönborn who was spontaneously accompanied by the Dalai Lama to St. Stephen’s Cathedral on occasion of the Pentecost mass.

On May 27 there was also a meeting with interior secretary of state of Austria Sebastian Kurz.
