Electronic gadgets banned during Dalai Lama`s teachings
Dharamsala: Electronic gadgets, including personal FM radio, will not be allowed during the teaching sessions of Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.
The decision was taken during a meeting to review security of the Dalai Lama, at the office of Superintendent of Police Dharamshala on August 16.
Only those FM radios provided by the Tibetan Security will be used during prayer or teaching session.
Himachal Pradesh Police reviewed security of the Tibetan spiritual leader and his official palace, besides establishments of the Tibetan government-in-exile, headquartered here several times in past few months.
Earlier, Superintendent of Police Balbir Thakur said that some loopholes were found in the security of spiritual leaders, the Dalai Lama and the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, who are residing here, and process is on to plug them.
The police have already strengthened security pickets around the Dalai Lama`s palace and the Gyuto Tantric Monastic University, where the Karmapa resides.
"Since the government of India has extended Z-plus category security to the Dalai Lama, we have requested it to look into the feasibility to add chemical detectors to his security too," said Ngodup Dorjee, secretary of Central Tibetan Administration`s (CTA) security wing.
According to the Dalai Lama`s office the next teaching in Dharamsala is from August 25 to 27.
