Tibetans-in-exile pray for Dalai Lama's long life

Amid growing concerns over the health of Tibetan
spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, the
Tibetans-in-exile offered special prayers in
Himachal Pradesh's Dharamsala town for the long life of their ageing leader.

The four-day-long prayers are organized every
year, but this year the prayers were extended to
five days, because of the recent earthquake in Tibet.

"That is like the biggest concern for all the
Tibetans inside and outside Tibet because
whatever we have is only Dalai Lama. We cannot
think beyond him. So everybody is scared and
concerned," said Tenzin Dicky, a volunteer for
the Dhasa Cholsum organization, which organized the prayers.

"We don't know how we are going to continue
without him. So, for that, our NGO has organized this prayer," he added.

Earlier on July 6, similar prayers were held here
on the occasion of Dala Lama's 75th birthday.

The Dalai Lama has made several trips to the
doctors in the recent years due to his poor
health - ranging from surgery for gallbladder stones to pain in his arms. (ANI)
