Gangtok: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai
Lama on Sunday urged people from all faiths to give equal respect
to all the religions in the world.
All the major religions in the world have visions, so
people should learn the principles of such religions and use
it in their day to day life, the Dalai Lama told people here.
Earlier, thousands of people lined up the streets here
from the Army Helipad at Libing to the Circuit House to have a
glimpse of the Tibetan spiritual, who arrived here today from
Ravangla in South Sikkim.
The streets of the Sikkim capital were also decorated with
banners welcoming the Dalai Lama.
The Dalai Lama is on a eight-day visit of Sikkim from
December 15 to 22 and already the Sikkim government has banned
slaughter of animals in the state during the stay of the
Tibetan spiritual leader.
