Hundreds of Tibetan Buddhist monks and devotees
participated in a religious congregation
addressed by Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama here on Sunday.

The participants included foreign tourists.

The Dalai Lama imparted the teachings on Avlokiteshavara Abhishek.

This special sermon was held at the Nyingma
Monastery under the auspices of the Himalayan Buddhist Society.

Some of His admirers and other devotees had
arrived at this popular tourist resort braving heavy rains.

"I have been following the Dalai Lama this
summer. I first went to Sumer and then Deskat up
in Nubra valley and spent a month in Ladakh, the
Leh area and took the bus down from Leh to here,
the road was really really treacherous with all
the rain this summer and the landslide and the
road was really bad but we made it here and now
we are happy," said Neal Patrick, an American tourist.

Some of them had come from Leh braving the
flood-affected roads for an audience withthe Dalai Lama.

"We are expecting around 7000 people, preachers
including Tibetan and foreigners and also from
Lahaul-Spiti. So, this afternoon after his
initiations he is going back to Dharamsala," said
Jigme Dorji, Executive Head of Nyingma Monastery, Manali.

The Dalai Lama is currently on a religious tour
of the Kullu-Manali area, visiting monasteries and delivering sermons.
