Dalai Lama could appear at the Glastonbury music fest in June

The Glastonbury festival is normally known for dealing with blues, folk and pop stars to the southwestern part of England for 5 days in the middle of the year in a assembling akin to the well known Woodstock Festival of the 1969.

Therefore, when the website of Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist leader, said that he would be there at the event that drew western icon Dolly Parton previous year, a lot of people were more than surprised. Still, his attendance has yet to be confirmed in spite of his site making a declaration that he would be there on 28th June, but later the statement was withdrawn.

According to reports, a post from Dalai Lama’s official website read: “His Holiness will give a talk at the Glastonbury Festival in the morning.” The show at the Worth Farm was scheduled on 28th June. The Guardian paper looked for confirmation as to whether the Tibetan Buddhist leader would make it to the fest, but the organizers have not said anything.  Tim Hensel, a Wedding photographer from Manchester, said he hoped the Dalai would appear.

When, people checked the official website of Dalai Lama – – it showed that the original post was bumped off. This popular fest has attracted pilgrims for adverting the culture of love and peace. And the pop finesse has been supportive of influential Buddhist monk’s environmental and spiritual causes.

According to reports, the Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion told on their site that even though the information has now been removed from his website, they believe that he is scheduled in for Sunday morning Pyramid Stage appearance.
