Little Buddhas

And all of them waiting for the 14th Dalai Lama in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh


The journey back to Tawang on the 50th year of his (The Dalai Lama's) escape from Tibet in 1959, drew Tibetan Buddhists from different corners to this town. People not only came from different corners of India, some have even come from Bhutan and Nepal on foot. And all of them came to meet the person they believe to be the Bodhisattva of Compassion, the living god.

Chasing The Old Monk

He spoke to the media twice inside the Tawang Monastery. That was the first day of his visit. And he spoke at length. Dalai Lama: I am not the issue, issue is 6 million Tibetan people’s well being, their basic rights, unless the Chinese govt address these basic issue seriously, there is no question my return, the very reason why we left Tibet because of there is some problem so unless the Chinese govt you see address these basic problem you see no use
