Heinrich Harrer Dies

Heinrich Harrer the author of the book 'Seven Years in Tibet'
has passed away January 7, 2006 in Austria at the age of 93.
A 1997 movie based on the book was directed by French director
Jean-Jacques Annaud, and starred Bratt Pitt in the role of
Heinrich Harrer. At the time of Harrer's death His Holiness
the Dalai Lama was giving the Kalachakra initiation in
Amravati, India. Sources quote HHDL saying, "We feel we
have lost a loyal friend from the West". Mr Harrer, he said "had
the unique opportunity to experience life in Tibet for seven long
years before Tibet lost its freedom. We Tibetans will always remember
Heinrich Harrer and will miss him greatly".
