Dalai Lama completes spiritual visit to Arunachal Pradesh under tight security
Under tight security, the 14th Dalai Lama, on his visit to Arunachal Pradesh, addressed gatherings in Tawang at the local stadium and performed certain spiritual ceremonies and rituals.

He was welcomed by the state Chief Minister Pema Khandu who said that the people were blessed with the presence of HH the Dalai Lama. He thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making the visit possible despite stiff opposition from China.

The addresses by the Dalai Lama in Tawang were held during his visit from April 8 to 10. His Holiness gave teachings on Kamalashila's The Middling States of Meditation & Gyalsey Thokme Sangpo's Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva at Yiga Choezin. He also conferred the Avalokiteshvara and the Rinzin Dhondup Initiations.

Several thousand Buddhist tribal and foreigners turned up to listen to the Dalai Lama's spiritual addresses during his sixth visit to the state. The Indian government has said that the trip was purely spiritual and China should stop raising 'artificial' controversies.

The Dalai Lama's trip has irked China with the warning that the visit would escalate India-China border tensions and has threatened to interfere in Kashmir as India had not paid heed to their protests.

The Chinese press has published a write-up saying that the people of Arunachal Pradesh were unhappy under the Indian government. China had been deeming the Dalai Lama as a troublemaker. It has been claimed by China on several occasions that Arunachal Pradesh was China's territory occupied by India.
