Dharamsala, Oct. 15 -- Sharing his thoughts and
recounting memories of His Holiness the Dalai
Lama, the Indian Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev said
yesterday that the Tibetan leader, the Dalai Lama
does not belong only to Tibetans and Tibet, but to the entire world.

“The Dalai Lama, who works for the well being of
the others, does not belong only to Tibet and
Tibetans. He belongs to the entire world,” said Baba Ramdev.

The world famous Yoga Guru held a short session
yesterday with the Tibetans at the Tsuglagkhang
temple here imparting knowledge on the benefits
of Yoga and talking about non violence, compassion and spirituality.

“Swami Ramdev was keen on meeting the Tibetans
here in Dharamsala, specially the monks and
nuns,” said Prime Minister Samdhong Rinpoche who attended the gathering.

“I would be very happy if His Holiness the Dalai
Lama was present here today,” said Baba Ramdev,
further adding that the Tibetan leader’s absence
was somehow substituted by his disciples -- the
Tibetans present at the gathering -- and the pristine beauty of Dharamsala.

The Dalai Lama is currently touring USA and later to Canada.

At the gathering, the celebrated Yoga Guru, whose
yoga teachings are watched by millions on television channels and
internet, taught a few breathing exercises to the
Tibetan monks, nuns and lay people present at the temple.

Tibetan Prime Minister Professor Samdhong
Rinpoche had earlier in the day attended the
inauguration of a 2 hour long Yoga session near
the HP cricket stadium and addressed thousands of
Yoga practitioners and enthusiasts gathered in the wee hours of the morning.

"Swami Ramdev has made a great realisation of the
effectiveness of Yoga such as Pranayama
(controlling prana or life force through the
regulation of breathing exercises) in the
interest of the humanity and peace in this
world,” Rinpoche added.The Yoga guru was honoured
with a statue of Lord Buddha and ceremonial scarf
by the Prime Minister at the session with the Tibetans at the temple.

The Yoga Guru is on a four-day visit to Himachal
Pradesh where he will hold public gatherings in
Chamba, Kangra, Mandi and Una districts of the state.
