"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

Dalai Lamas special teaching session on Buddhism

June 26, 2009

Dharamshala, June 24, 2009 - ANI: Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on
Wednesday started a two-day special teaching session for Buddhist students
in Dharamsala.

Thousands of Buddhist students from across the world gathered at the Tibetan
Children Villa School for the teachings on the text of thirty-seven
practices of Bodhisattvas.

"We are very happy to gather here. All the Tibetan youngsters are here so we
could learn something on Buddhist (Buddhism)," said Tenzin Namgyal, a
Tibetan student.

Many Buddhist monks and nuns and other local people also gathered to attend
teachings of the spiritual leader.

Tibetans believe that Dalai Lama follows a different approach to teaching
and explains basics of everything.

"This is very important particularly the approach his holiness takes is very
different. And this is very much in tune with audience here. He is putting
everything in perspective, not just going about the traditional way of
explaining things. But rather really touching on the very basics of it and
then making sense of everything that he teaches. And thereby making them get
the essence of Buddha teaching which is to bring about a positive
transformation in their mentality," said Damdul Namgyal, a monk.

Dharamsala, which is also called Little Tibet, is home to thousands of
Tibetans who found a new haven to preserve their unique faith, culture and
identity.

Tibetan exiles are protesting around the world by reviving the spirit of the
Tibetan national uprising of 1959, engaging in non-violent direct action, to
end China's occupation of Tibet.
