Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama greets devotees before the Avalokiteshvara Empowerment at Kalachakra Phodrang, Salugara in West Bengal on March 29, 2013. Answering a question from the press on what he expects from China's President Xi Jinping, the Dalai Lama said he is optimistic.
"So the leadership has to act according (to) new reality. So therefore I think overall I am optimistic. Things are changing. But it is not for practical or realistic, something or big change come immediately. That is I think unrealistic," said the 77-year-old Nobel Peace laureate. (Photo/OHHDL/Tenzin Choejor)
