China 'strongly dissatisfied' with India for inviting Dalai Lama to Buddhist meet

Mathura: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama would be visiting the city on Monday and will be staying at the Karshni Ashram Raman Reti here, an official said today.

Almost 1000 representatives from 35 countries around the globe are attending the Conclave.

Buddhist monks and scholars from various countries are participating in the seminar "Buddhism in 21st Century" being held at International Convention Centre here, about 100 km from the capital Patna.

India deliberately used the Dalai Lama, who is not only a religious figure but also a political one, as a "legal excuse" to claim the disputed region, said Hu Shisheng, the director of the Institute of South and Southeast Asian and Oceania Studies.

He emphasised the need for refinement of emotions while adding that compassion was as much the make of human beings as violence.

Previously, some global Buddhist conferences barred the Dalai Lama because of China's opposition.

Since the two split earlier this year, Meek believes he's been the subject of scathing headlines about his personal matters. A week ago, Meek referenced the lyrics in a post on Instagram with the caption: "Rozay been told me not to trust you".

Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama and other dignitaries released a Pali Tripitaka book at the inaugural session of the Conclave. Inaugurating three day worldwide conference on secularism here, he said India was a confluence various religions and cultures and it was the only country in the world, which was spreading the message of world peace and global brotherhood by strictly adhering to the principles of secularism. "China is strongly dissatisfied and resolutely opposed to this", Ms. Hua observed.

"There is a lot of expectations from Buddhism across the world", the Minister said.

The Dalai Lama lit a traditional lamp to mark the start of the meeting at Rajgir, a Tourism Department official said.

China was also peeved when President Pranab Mukherjee hosted the Dalai Lama at his official residence with other Nobel prize winners in December past year.

Terming the yatra as praise worthy initiative of the State Government, Dalai lama has supported the Narmada Seva Yatra being set out to conserve Narmada river.
