TUVA: Photo exhibition ‘The Dalai Lama – As Long As Space Remains…’ that was twice shown in Kyzyl, capital city of the Russian Buddhist Republic of Tuva, has been traveling extensively across republic to bring His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s message of peace and hope to its most distant areas.
By the efforts of the local Tibet Support Group the exhibition was shown at Bai-Taiga, Barun-Khemchik, Sut-Khol, Dzun-Khemchik, Chaa-Khol, Ulug-Khem and other regions of Tuva.
The exhibition includes exquisite photos by Tenzin Choejor, His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s personal photographer who accompanies him in his journeys all over the world, as well as Igor Yachoglov, Moscow-based photographer and a co-director of Save Tibet Foundation.
Each photograph presented at the exhibition is accompanied by a quotation from His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s books and religious teachings translated into Russian and Tuvan languages.
Teachers of the local schools as well as librarians and social workers have been using the exhibition as a wonderful platform to address the younger generation on the importance of inner values and universal responsibility as key ideas of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The organisers noted that deep insights of the Nobel Peace Laureate and the beloved spiritual leader of all Tuvans on the preciousness of human life, importance of compassion, tolerance, forgiveness and peace of mind were crucial for young people in helping them to find a proper direction in life.
The exhibition “The Dalai Lama – As Long As Space Remains” has been shown in Tuva with the support of Telo Tulku Rinpoche, His Holiness the Dalai Lama Honorary Representative in Russia, Mongolia and CIS countries and Save Tibet Foundation (Moscow).
