Dalai Lama gets Mahatma Gandhi peace prize

Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama was presented the Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Peace and Reconciliation.



Bodh Gaya: Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai
Lama was on Wednesday presented the Mahatma Gandhi International
Award for Peace and Reconciliation on the fourth day of the
ten-day Kalachakra initiations here.

The grand daughter of Mahatma Gandhi, Ila Gandhi,
presented the award, instituted in 2003, to the Dalai Lama at
the Kalachakra ground here.
Ila Gandhi, who is based in South Africa, is chairman of
the Gandhi Development Trust, which gives the award.

In his acceptance speech, the spiritual leader said it was
a happy moment for him to recall Mahatama Gandhi who had
experimented with non-violence to gain freedom for India.

He said he had also adopted the path of non-violence and
was an admirer of Mahatama Gandhi.
Ila Gandhi said the Dalai Lama was supposed to receive the
award in Durban in 2011, but because of some visa related
problems, he could not make it.
