Leh, Ladakh, September 11 - 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorjee, who is on a religious visit to Ladakh, inaugurated a school here in Leh yesterday. The school has been built with support from His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Charitable Trust and managed by Nalanda Dharma Centre.

The Dalai Lama, during his visits to the region had expressed a need to give education of both Tibetan Buddhism and modern sciences to children of Ladakh region, especially from remote areas. The initial batch of students enrolled are from Drokpa tribe of remote Da-Hanu areas of Ladakh.

From Ladakh, he will move on to to Lahaul and Spiti in Himachal Pradesh, where he will attend prayer meetings in many Buddhist places, including the world-famous Tabo monastery.

“It is my prayer and hope to visit Ladakh and meet the people of this land many times in future,” the young Lama said earlier.

Ladakh is a predominantly Buddhist region with close ethnic and cultural ties with Tibet.
