where can I get more information on the dalai lama and his birthday?
The Dalai Lama’s 73rd Birthday HUNDREDS OF Tibetan exiles and Indians today (July 6) celebrated the Dalai Lama’s 73th birthday at McleaodGanj near Dharamsala. Tibetans mark the 73th birthday of their spiritual leader and an icon of peace and wisdom in modern times, and prayed for his long life. The birthday celebrations began early today and are continuing with great enthusiasm, despite the heavy monsoons here. Large numbers of Tibetans have been standing outside His Holiness’ palace since morning. Alai Lama is a revered temporal leader among Tibetans. He is head of the Tibetan government-in-exile in Dharamsala. A Nobel Peace Prize laureate, he is also the world’s best-known Buddhist monk. Members of the Kashag, Tibetan Parliament, and the Tibetan government-in-exile assembled at the Tsuglakhang Tibetan temple this morning for a prayer meeting on the occasion. http://india.merinews.com/catFull.jsp?articleID
