New Delhi, July 8 (ANI): Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama called on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) senior leader Lal Krishna Advani at his official residence here today.

The visit was termed as a courtesy call.

During his birthday celebrations here on Monday, he termed his stay in India for the past 50 years as an enriching experience.

"Fifty years passed since I came to this country because of some tragedy beyond human control. When I look back last 50 years, I think my life has not been wasted. I got the opportunity to learn from other religious traditions," he said.

The Dalai Lama was born in 1935 in a hamlet at Takster in Tibet.

The Dalai Lama has lived in Dharamsala with thousands of his followers ever since a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959. (ANI)
