The Dalai Lamai is 75 years old today!
He celebrated the day in Dharmsala India, his hometown-in-exile since 1959, the year that he fled Chinese rule in Tibet. He enjoyed performances from local dancers in traditional Tibetan dress, and was entertained by artists from the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts at the Main Tibetan Temple in Mcleod Ganj.
As always wise, he said of his years: “I know my life has not been wasted.” Too true. Best Wishes for many more!
Followers in Tibet were not allowed to celebrate the day and Chinese officials claimed they do not remember his birthday. Screw China.
