PHOTOS of Dalai Lama during his Road Journey to Bomdila


Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Wednesday held a preaching session at Bomdila in Arunachal Pradesh’s West Kameng district. The discourse is underway at the Buddha Park despite the prevailing inclement weather situation. The Dalai Lama arrived at Bomdila last evening marking the beginning of his nine-day visit to the picturesque north-east state. The Dalai Lama’s visit to the state comes eight years after his previous visit in 2009 which was exactly 50 years after he had passed through the town on his way from Lhasa in Tibet to India. The Tibetan spiritual leader arrived by road as his chopper could not take off from Guwahati due to inclement weather. He was accompanied by CM Khandu besides other high-ranking police and civil officials. Here are some photographs taken during his journey up to Bomdila.
