Dalai Lama Angers China - Again

. Tuesday, November 10


On Sunday, the Dalai Lama traveled to Tawang, a remote town near the border of Tibet, to lead five days of prayer and Buddhist teachings.

Tawang is located at the center of a border dispute between India and China. India gave the Dalai Lama permission to travel there, asserting control over the area, while China believes that the Dalai Lama’s purpose in going is to promote Tibetan independence from China and remove China’s right to choose the Dalai Lama’s successor.

While tensions rise between nuclear India and China, the Dalai Lama’s only concern is to preserve Tibetan religion and culture. His message is, as always, to promote religious values, peace and harmony.
