(TibetanReview.net, Jun09, 2016) – More than 8,000 people are attending three days of religious teaching being given by Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, over Jun 7-9 in the Tsuglakhang, the main Buddhist temple at Dharamshala, India.

The teaching is on ‘Conscientiousness’ from Shantideva’s Bodhicharyavatara, A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life (Tibetan: Chodjug) and has been requested by Indian Buddhists belonging to the Nalanda Shiksha group.

Apart from a total of 1814 Indian Buddhists attending the teaching, there are 2900 monks and nuns, 2944 local lay Tibetans and 1852 people from countries outside India.

In an act of devotion, the Nalanda Shiksha members made traditional offerings of pure water, perfumed water, incense, glowing light, fragrant anointment, celestial food and enchanting sound to the Dalai Lama.
