New Delhi - Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader His Highness the Dalai
Lama on Monday donated 500,000 Indian Rupees (USD 12,500) for relief
and reconstruction work for victims of Cyclone Nargis in Burma.

The Nobel Peace Laureate, Dalai Lama, has come forward to support the
people of Burma, who are now reeling under the impact of Nargis, said
Dr. Tint Swe, a minister in Burma's government in exile­ the National
Coalition Government of Union of Burma (NCGUB), who received the donation.

"This is an encouragement for the people of Burma," said Dr. Tint
Swe, adding that the donation will be send to the All Burma Monks Alliance.

The donation by the Tibetan spiritual leader is the second since the
killer cyclone struck Burma's coastal region of Irrawaddy and Rangoon division.

Immediately after the cyclone lashed Burma, Dalai Lama made a
donation of 50,000 Indian rupees to help cyclone victims.
