His Holiness the Dalai Lama taking a bite of offerings on the final day of the annual five day offering to Guru Padmasambhava at the Main Tibetan Temple in Dharamsala, HP, India on October 9, 2022

Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, HP, India –  His Holiness the Dalai Lama has issued the following statement of congratulations.

“I am very pleased to learn that this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to three scientists, Alain Aspect, John Clauser and my friend, Anton Zeilinger for their work in developing experimental tools that have laid the foundation for a new era of quantum technology. I offer my congratulations to them for their pioneering research.

“In my discussions with scientists over almost four decades, I have had several fruitful conversations with Prof. Zeilinger in relation to quantum physics. We met first in 1997 here in Dharamsala, following which I visited his laboratory at the University of Innsbruck in 1998. We have subsequently met here in Dharamsala during meetings of the Mind & Life Institute.

“I have great respect for modern science and have thought long and deeply about it, not only with regard to what it has to tell us about reality, but also in terms of how it may influence human values. I rejoice that this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to Anton Zeilinger and his colleagues for work that has so much potential to bring benefit to the whole of humanity.”

His Holiness has also written separately to Anton Zeilinger to convey his congratulations, as well as offering his prayers and good wishes.
