Dalai Lama

After a successful tour to Ladakh, Tibetan spiritual leader the 14th Dalai Lama returned to his exile home in Dharmashala. On Monday morning, hundreds of Tibetans, including monks and nuns, gathered at Kangra airport to greet their beloved spiritual leader. Tibetan performers greeted him with traditional opera dances and songs.

The Dalai Lama told reporters at Kangra airport that he returned to Dharamshala in excellent health after visiting Ladakh. The Dalai Lama departed Dharamshala on July 8 and returned after a month in Ladakh.

Tenzin Tsundue, an exiled Tibetan said, “His Holiness the Dalai Lama is approaching Dharamshala after his visit to Ladakh. He is coming back after about two months and we have come here to see him and to welcome him. He is our spiritual leader and it’s really important to see him and to welcome him here in Dharamshala.”

Tenzin Nyidon, an exile Tibetan said, “We all are gathered here today as his holiness the dalai lama is approaching here after his Laddakh visit and we all are very happy to welcome him and to see him. Even though we live in Dharamshala, we feel very blessed and happy to see him whenever he goes somewhere or returns here, so we come here to get his blessings.”
