(TibetanReview.net, Aug01, 2017) – On the final of his three-day teaching at Shiwatsel Palace in Ladakh’s capital Leh on Jul 30, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, met with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti of Jammu & Kashmir. The latter praised him highly as a man of peace whom she would like to invite again.

She arrived on the teaching ground for the meeting and addressed the over-60,000 devotees attending the teaching which was organised by Ladakh Buddhist Association.

And she told the Dalai Lama while addressing the crowd: “We the people of Jammu & Kashmir, as well as the people of Ladakh, are happy that you come here and shower your blessings on us. I wish you the best of health so you may continue to visit us. You bring peace wherever you go. I’ve been touched to know of your remarks distinguishing Muslims from terrorists and reaffirming Islam as a religion of peace. If conditions prevailed I would like to invite you to bring your soothing blessings to the people of the Kashmir Valley too—thank you.”

The Dalai Lama, in turn, praised India’s religious harmony and called for developing a deeper sense of oneness of humanity to resolve ongoing tensions in the world.
