Tibet-Dalai-Lama-2016-1Dharamshala — The spiritual leader of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has expressed condolences over the loss of lives in Kerala temple fire tragedy on Sunday.

"Moved by deep sadness at the injury and tragic loss of life suffered by pilgrims in a fire at Puttingal Devi temple in Kollam early on Sunday," His Holiness the Dalai Lama has written to Kerala Chief Minister Shri Oommen Chandy.

"I would like to express my condolences to you and the families who have lost loved ones, as well as those who were injured in this devastating tragedy," he said.

"I understand that everything is being done to treat those injured and that rescue and relief efforts are well underway," His Holiness the Dalai Lama said in his condolence letter.

"As a token of my sympathy, I would like to make a donation from the Dalai Lama Trust towards the relief efforts," he added.

The office of the Dalai Lama in Dharamshala, India, said that His Holiness has concluded the letter with an assurance of his prayers.

At least 110 people were killed and over 350 injured when an fireworks show set off massive explosions and caused a huge blaze at the Puttingal temple in the coastal town of Paravur located about 60 kms from Thiruvananthapuramin.

'The impact of the explosion brought down the building where the crackers had been stored, trapping many,' according to Indian media reports.
