The Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has met four victims of alleged sexual abuse in the Netherlands.
The group had requested the meeting to discuss abuse reportedly carried out by former or current Buddhist teachers in several countries.
“We found refuge in Buddhism with an open mind and heart, until we were violated in its name,” they wrote.
A spokesperson said the Dalai Lama was “saddened” to hear about the abuse and “constantly condemned” such behaviour.
The Dalai Lama, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, is currently on a tour of Europe.
