DHARAMSHALA, July 5: Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama left his exile hometown of Dharamshala yesterday for a prolonged visit to the south Indian state of Karnataka, home to some of the largest Tibetan refugee settlements.

The Dalai Lama arrived in the Tibetan settlement of Bylakuppe today where he is schedule to take part in his 78th birthday celebrations.

The two Tibetan settlements of Lugsam Samdupling and Dickey Larsoe in Bylakuppe, in collaboration with Sera Jey Monastery are organising the celebrations.

The programme includes offering of mandala to the Dalai Lama by the elected leader of the Tibetan people, Sikyong Dr Lobsang Sangay followed by the dedication of Drukchu Yangden song by the students of Central School for Tibetan, Bylakuppe and inter-faith prayers for world peace and the long life of the Dalai Lama.

Live webcast of the ceremony will be available here from 9:00am – 11:30am IST.

Tibetans and supporters in Dharamshala, the seat of the exile Tibetan administration, and around the world, will be marking the Tibetan Nobel Peace laureate’s 78th birthday with prayers and festive celebrations.

Earlier today, the Dalai Lama spoke to Indian students during his visit to ISKCON temple in the state capital city of Bangalore. According to PTI, the Tibetan spiritual leader said India had a great tradition of spirituality, non-violence and religious harmony but there were a "lot of problems" at the social level.

"The 21st century generation should create better conditions within the country to make significant contributions towards a better world," PTI quoted the Dalai Lama as saying.

He said change in the world could be brought about after bringing about change by people locally, and stressed on the amalgamation of professional knowledge with "karuna" (compassion) to create a better world. Knowledge based self-centric attitude destroys the world, the report cited the Dalai Lama as saying, "Wonderful brain alone is no guarantee for meaningful or happier life."

His Holiness is scheduled to confer a two-day Yamantaka Initiation (dranak chusum wang) at Dzongar Chodhe Monastery in Hunsur on July 12 and 13.

The 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso was born on July 6, 1935, to a farming family, in a small hamlet located in Taktser, Amdo, northeastern Tibet. At the very young age of two, the child who was named Lhamo Dhondup at that time, was recognised as the reincarnation of the previous 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso.

The Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are believed to be enlightened beings who have postponed their own nirvana and chosen to take rebirth in order to serve humanity.
