Kangra (Himachal Pradesh), May 10 (ANI) -- After
a brief visit to the United States, Tibetan
spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama returned to Dharamsala.

Samdhong Rinpoche, Tibetan Prime
Minister-in-exile said the Dalai Lama's tour to United States was a success.

"He visited California, Boston and other places.

After his successful tour, he has come back to India," said Rinpoche.

The Dalai Lama has visited the U.S. many times
and met with the last three U.S. Presidents, but
always in an unofficial capacity - never in the
Oval Office. But the Dalai Lama said official or
unofficial doesn't matter to him.

The Dalai Lama praised American democracy and
thinks President Obama is realistic and open.

In an exclusive interview with FOX News during
his five-city tour of the United States, the
Dalai Lama said: "I think basically America is a
champion of freedom, democracy, liberty." (ANI)
