Tibetan Spiritual leader Dalai Lama drove across Bengaluru to the National Law School of India University, an institution that offers undergraduate and graduate legal and policy education. He was received by the Vice-Chancellor, Dr R Venkata Rao and members of the faculty before being escorted into a hall filled by 400 students and faculty.

Once the other guests had arrived, he walked with them to where a ceremonial ribbon had been set up. With monks from Gyumey Tantric College supporting his chanting of auspicious verses, His Holiness joined hands with Karnataka Home Minister, Dr G Parmeshwar and University of Mysore Vice-Chancellor KS Rangappa to cut the ribbon and symbolically open the Institute.

Dalali Lama noted the importance in India and Tibet of upholding the five major and five minor sciences among which he counts understanding of the workings of the mind and emotions.

He said, “Relations between India and Tibet have for long been characterized as those between a Guru and chela or master and disciple. When we think of what we have received from India, we feel very close. Of course, Indians on the whole revere Shiva, and while his abode at Mt Kailash is located in Tibet, the Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, and subsequent masters were all Indians. What’s more, the Ganges River so sacred to India has its source in Tibet.”
