20december20103Dharamshala: Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama reached Tibetan settlement at Ravangla, South Sikkim, Saturday, December 18, where a huge gathering of devotees and followers were waiting for him with great enthusiasm. His Holiness spent more than four hours there with the Tibetan refugees.

In an informal talk with the Ministers and the district officials, His Holiness the Dalai Lama said that the protest and the revolution of Tibetan people demanding free Tibet was genuine. He said that the communist government of China never respects the traditions and cultures of Tibet and its people and hence the 60 years long demand and revolution is just. The people of Tibet have their own right of religion which China is not allowing and, hence, this struggle of Tibetan people throughout the world to get their self respect back, His Holiness further added.

Speaking on Buddhism, His Holiness said that Buddhism teaches us to live a holy life. "Everything is the result of one's own doing", he said, adding, "this is the core of the teaching in Buddhism". He said, "one who always visits Gonpa (monastery), performs prayer and takes Buddha Darsan (prayers) cannot be taken as true follower of Buddhism; the teachings of Lord Buddha should be practiced in every individual devotee's life. Buddhism teaches us to live a holy and respectable life so that one can feel the presence of Lord Buddha inside" which, he said, was the "true worship of Lord Buddha".

His Holiness further said, there are a number of religions in the present world which can be categorized into two - one having vision and another without any visions. He said the major religions like Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism are the religions having vast visions and hence the people should learn the principles of such religions and practice in their day to day life to live a holy and spiritual life. His Holiness urged the devotees to give equal respect to all the religions of the world.

At Ravangla His Holiness was reverentially welcomed by the Assembly Speaker KT Gyaltsen, Ministers CB Karki, DN Thakarpa, Neeru Sewa, Tilu Gurung, MLAs, Sonam Gyatso Bhutia, Binod Rai, Political Secretary to Chief Minsiter KN Rai, Zilla Adhyaksha South Rabi Chandra Gurung, Upadhyaksha Himal Tamang, Chairman Namchi Municipal Council BT Tamang, DC and SP South and the officials of South District.

Later his Holiness went to the construction site of Buddha Park, Ravangla, where he spent the night at guest house. There the devotees yarned for a holy prayers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and blessings from him.
