Jul 7, 2013 14:28 IST

Thousands in India and across the world participated in the 78th birthday celebrations of His Holiness the Dalai Lama with special celebrations also being held in Dharamsala. Several monks and Tibetans-in-exile in India and abroad participated in prayers seeking long life for their spiritual leader who two years back relinquished his role as temporal and political head of Tibetans.

In his brief address in Tibetan at Bylakuppe in Karnataka, the Dalai Lama expressed his gratitude for the government and the people of India for the hospitality they have extended to the exiled Tibetans for over 50 years.

The present Dalai Lama is actually 14th Dalai Lama. His religious name is Tenzin Gyatso. His birth name was Lhamo Dondrub.
