The Dalai Lama said he wanted to travel to China on a "pilgrimage" and to see the changes in the country, addressing hundreds of followers Friday at the anniversary of a 1959 uprising in Tibet against Chinese rule. The supreme Tibetan spiritual leader said his envoys, who recently returned from talks with officials in China, had conveyed his desire to the Chinese government. "My envoys reiterated my wish to visit China on a pilgrimage," he said in an address to thousands of followers in Dharmsala, the seat of his government-in-exile. "As a country with a long history of Buddhism, China has many sacred pilgrim sites," he said. "As well as visiting the pilgrim sites, I hope I will be able to see for myself the changes and developments in the People's Republic of China."
