Dalai Lama prays for safe return of Khandu
Dharamsala: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama is concerned about Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu after the helicopter carrying him went missing, his aide said on Sunday.
"His Holiness is deeply concerned about the situation and is praying for the safe return of Dorjee Khandu and others," Tenzin Taklha, joint secretary at the Dalai Lama`s office, said.
The Nobel laureate is now in Japan, where he offered prayers and provided solace to the survivors of the devastating March 11 earthquake.
The Dalai Lama had visited Arunachal Pradesh on the invitation of Khandu in November 2009. The Dalai Lama inaugurated a hospital there for which he contributed Rs 2 million.
It was through Tawang that in 1959 the Dalai Lama escaped the Chinese authorities to enter India.
The sixth Dalai Lama, Tsangyang Gyatso, was born in the Tawang region in 1682.
