He spoke of violence in the Middle East, calling it "unthinkable", and shared a message of "love and tolerance" with the crowd.

"While you are here, enjoy the joyfulness here," he said. "But you should remember on this same planet are human beings being killed by human beings.""A lot of problems we are experiencing are our own creations. Violence is being created this very moment in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria."

"While you are here, enjoy the joyfulness here," he said. "But you should remember on this same planet are human beings being killed by human beings."

"A lot of problems we are experiencing are our own creations. Violence is being created this very moment in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria."

He later joined Patti Smith on the main stage for a climate change debate, where the crowd serenaded him with "Happy Birthday", as he turns 80 next week.

Such an honour to have the Dalai Lama here on Worthy Farm this morning.
