His Holiness the Dalai Lama visited Mahabodhi Temple, the seat of Lord Buddha’s enlightenment to offer prayers on his second day in Bodh Gaya.
With flowers and traditional Tibetan scarves, more than thousands of Tibetans, himalayans and foreign devotees lined up the street leading to the holy site to greet the Tibetan spiritual leader.
At the main entrance of the temple, His Holiness was greeted by Sakya Trizin Ratna Vajra Rinpoche and Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche. His Holiness gave his blessings for the 26th Sakya Monlam being held in Gaya and proceeded towards the inner sanctum of the temple and the Bodhi tree.
