The two Nobel Peace Prize laureates met for the sixth time. Their last meeting was during the Tibetan leader's visit to White House which also garnered criticism from China, which accused the spiritual leader of sending the wrong signal to Tibetans.

In their meeting, the two leaders talked about their "compassion and altruism" to unite the world and "promote peace in today's world torn by strife and violence". "I mentioned to him, we need promotion of sense of oneness…too much division," the Dalai Lama later confirmed.

The 82-year-old retired Tibetan leader also motivated Obama to bring the change which world needs. The Dalai Lama said, "You are young and you can do a lot. Although my generation will not see the results, but your generation will definitely see the results."
