"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, who is
on his four-day-long visit to the Kullu-Manali
region of Himachal Pradesh, said the 'Middle Way
Path' and non-violence can solve the Tibetan autonomy issue.

"About the 'Middle Way path' there are critical
views, but majority fully support it. From
time-to time, you can ask for opinions or
suggestions. So, a majority of them fully support
the 'Middle Path'. As far as non-violence is
concerned, even the youth organisations are fully
committed," said the Dalai Lama on Sunday.

China has accused the Dalai Lama of being a
'splittist' and seeking independence of Tibet,
but he says he only wants autonomy for the Tibetans.

The Dalai Lama has in recent years called for
limited autonomy for Tibet, but some Tibetans are demanding full independence.

He suggested that Buddhists acquire knowledge
about modern science and yet preserve their traditional values.
