Dharamsala, Feb 14(ANI) -- Tibetan spiritual
leader Dalai Lama on Sunday sent out wishes for a
prosperous Losar, the Tibetan New Year, after a
religious ceremony in Dharamsala.

Thousands of Tibetans, foreigners and Buddhist
monks gathered at Tsuglagkhank, the main Buddhist
temple in Dharamsala, to hear from their spiritual leader, Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama extended his wishes to all
Tibetans in the world and even wished China on
their new year, which this time is the Year of the Tiger.

The Dalai Lama supporting the Tibetan
government-in-exile has requested the exiled
Tibetans to not carry out a grand celebration,
due to the tense situation prevailing in Tibet.

"We are not celebrating the New Year, Losar, in a
very grand way; we are only performing the
religious ceremony and rituals. I wish all the
Tibetans inside and outside Tibet and also
forward my greetings of Losar to all followers in
Himalayan regions, and to all the friends and
Buddhist followers," the Dalai Lama said.

"I would only say that every Tibetan and Buddhist
follower should study and learn Buddhist
philosophy, and study modern culture and Tibetan
philosophy. So, this is the most important
message I would give today to Tibetan and
Buddhist followers in the Himalayan region and others," he added.
