Hamburg, Germany, 24 August 2014 - Emerging from his hotel into the sunlight falling through the trees, His Holiness the Dalai Lama took time to greet Tibetans and other well-wishers who had gathered to express their respect and support. Reaching the stage of the Congress Centre Hamburg, his first act was to salute a 104 year old woman who had been brought to meet him.
