Dr. Modi, president of Maha Bodhi society, asks for Indian citizenship for the Dalai Lama who agreed to become an Indian citizen. If the Dalai Lama gets citizenship, it would end the conflict on the Tibet issue, says Dr. Modi. http://northernlines.in/2008/04/17/dr-bk-modi-demands-indian-citizenship-for-the-dalai-lama/
Khen Rinpoche, the Abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India, has been staying with us for some days. When he came one rose bush which had no blooms, immediately got two perfect maroon colored roses that blossomed. As Rinpoche walked about the yard watering the grass, the birds would come and sit right where he had watered. It was quite precious to see this. His monastery is the seat of the Panchen Lama in exile, who the Chinese Government kidnapped about 15 years ago. The Panchen Lama has not been heard from since and no one knows if he is even alive.
