Dalai Lama to deliver speech in congregation in KishtwarDharamsala : Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama will visit Paddar in Kishtwar district of Jammu and Kashmir on Jun 5 to address a religious congregation. This would be his first visit to the area as his visits so far have remained confined to Leh and Ladakh where Buddhism is the main religion. Dalai Lama will inaugurate a Buddhist centre and hold prayers at Paddar, the only place in Jammu region where about 7,000 Buddhists live. Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is also scheduled to attend the ceremony, a Tibetan government-in- exile official said. "The Dalai Lama, who will arrive at Gulabgarh tomorrow, will attend a religious function and bless his followers on Sunday," Tenzin Taklha, joint secretary at the Dalai Lama's office, said. Gulabgarh is a small Buddhist-dominated town in Paddar, known for its Sapphire mines, which borders the picturesque Zanskar Valley in Kargil district.
