After spending most of the time at his residence since the global COVID-19 outbreak, His Holiness the Dalai Lama agrees to visit and bless devotees in Ladakh between July and August, according to the request of Thiksay Rinpoche of Thiksay Monastery and former MP Thupten Tsewang, Current President of Ladakh Buddhist Association on behalf of Ladakhi people.
The two received a special audience from His Holiness the Dalai Lama at his residence earlier today during which the request was made as per Thiksay Rinpoche.
The upcoming visitation would be the first outing of His Holiness the Dalai Lama since the emergence of a pandemic to which “the followers in Ladakh will be delightful”, according to former parliamentarian Thupten Tsewang. Till now, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has only granted virtual and in-person audiences from his residence in Dharamshala.
