Rarely seen photographs of the Dalai Lama will feature in a commemorative booklet to be presented to his Holiness during his historic visit to Dundee.
The images, taken by Michael Peto, show the Dalai Lama on a visit to a school for Tibetan children in New Delhi in 1964.
The pictures are currently held in Dundee University's archives.
His Holiness will visit the city for the first time as part of a tour of the UK on Friday, June 22 and will give a special talk to a sold-out crowd at the Caird Hall.
University archivist Patricia Whatley said: “The rarely seen photographs are part of a set of 34 that Michael Peto took during a visit to New Delhi in 1964. Peto was on a tour with the Save the Children charity at the time, and the resulting images show The Dalai Lama in both a reflective mood and engaging with the people at the school.
“We thought it would be a fitting gift to present these images to His Holiness in this publication commemorating his visit to Dundee. I’m sure he will enjoy looking at these images, which he has probably never seen before.”
When Peto died in 1970 his extensive collection of 130,000 prints and negatives was left to the University of Dundee by his family, and significant parts of the collection have now been digitised.
Michael Peto was born in Hungary in 1908, moving to London in 1939. His work includes photographs from Israel, Korea, North Africa and India, as well as from Great Britain and other European countries.
