Dharamshala, Oct. 4 (ANI): Hundreds of Taiwanese gathered to hear the sermon of Dalai Lama at a four-day teaching session here.
The Dalai Lama will give teachings on Nagarjuna's 'The Fundamental Wisdom Treatise on the Middle Way' (Uma Tsawai Sherab), Atisha's 'Lama for the Path to Enlightenment' (Jangchup Lamdron), Tsongkhapa's 'In Praise of Dependent Origination' (Tendrel Toepa) and Tsongkhapa's 'Concise Stages for the Path to Enlightenment' (Lamrim Dudon).
The teachings were organized at the request of a group of Taiwanese nationals.
Thousands of Tibetans, Buddhist monks, nuns, and many foreigners gathered at the Tsuglagkhang Temple to listen to the teachings.
"The Dalai Lama is giving a four-day teaching which has just started. He is giving teaching from the text of Nagarjuna, who is a second century Indian scholar from south and also from Atisha's way to enlightenment. These teachings have been requested by a group from Taiwan so there are lots of Taiwanese people along with many locals and foreigners," said Lobsang, a follower.
An estimated 80,000 Tibetans arrived in India along with the Dalai Lama after an abortive uprising against the Chinese rule in 1959 and over the years their numbers have swelled. By Akhilesh Bharti (ANI)
