(TibetanReview.net, Sep09, 2015) – More than 5000 people from 68 countries are attending four days of religious teachings being given by Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, at Dharamshala, India, over Sep 7-10. The teachings have been requested by a group belonging to Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, with the venue being the Thekchen Choeling Tsuglakhang.
