The Dalai Lama appreciated the Taiwanese for coming all the way from Taiwan. Although His Holiness had the intention to visit Taiwan for teaching frequently, yet the re-starting of Sino-Tibet dialogue in 2002 did not allow to do so.He , however said that He will pray to materialise such visit.

In his brief introductory address, the Dalai Lama said as a Buddhist monk, his life-long commitment is to offer service of teaching the traditions of Buddhism to the people all over the world, especially to benefit the Chinese Buddhists in Mainland China.
