Dharamshala -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
offered prayers to provide solace to those
affected by the devastating floods in Leh on Monday.

Jammu & Kashmir Minister Nawang Rigzin Jora
accompanied His Holiness the Dalai Lama to survey
the rehabilitation camp at the worst-hit Choglamsar.

 From Choglamsar His Holiness the Dalai Lama went
to Jokhang, the main Buddhist monastery at Leh,
and presided over a prayer service for the flood victims.

Later, addressing a huge gathering at Lamdon
school ground, His Holiness boosted the morale of
the survivors to start a fresh new life and told
each individual to recite at least 100,000 to
600,000 Mani (Buddhist religious mantras) times a day.

Recounting how he recited 600,000 Mani when his
mother passed away, His Holiness told the
survivors of flood victims not to get dismayed
and encouraged them to offer prayers to family
members and relatives who lost their precious lives.

His Holiness donated Rs 25 lakh to the flood victims to rebuild their homes.
