Rinpoche also thanked India for hosting the Tibetan refugees for over five decades.

"Tibetan refugees are living in India for past 50 years, considering it their own home.

And this time I would like to thank the people and the Indian government to have bear with us. There is nothing yet decided in this regard and talks are in progress with China.

We only demand people's support and unity in this issue and hope it will be resolved," Rinpoche told reporters here. The Dalai Lama is holding a five-day prayer session.
