The Dalai Lama, Buddhist spiritual leader, is on more than a month-long journey to the Union Territory of Ladakh. He paid visits to several places of worship today.

He spoke with religious leaders at the Chowkhang Vihara, Moravian Church, Imam Bargah, and Jama Masjid about a variety of topics. The Dalai Lama thanked everyone for making arrangements for his visit.

The spiritual leader emphasised the importance of communal harmony and stated that his main goal is to foster a sense of unity among the seven billion people on Earth. He said that we all start off the same way and end up dying the same way. So, he added, while we are still living, we should live in accordance with the spirit of unity shared by all human beings.

He continued by saying that while some minor variations may exist between different faiths and religions, the fact that we all share the same earth as other humans is the most important thing. The Dalai Lama stated that because global warming is becoming a more serious concern, everyone should cooperate during this critical time.

Dalai Lama said that some global developments are causing problems for the entire human race, so we must support one another out of a sense of shared duty and brotherhood. He urged everyone to pursue happiness and contribute towards a more peaceful world.

On July 16, the Dalai Lama arrived in Leh. He is likely to stay in Ladakh for more than a month. According to reports, he will also travel to Zanskar for four days.
