Lamdon Model Senior Secondary School Golden Jubilee Celebration
This morning His Holiness the Dalai Lama was invited to the Lamdon Model Senior Secondary School in Shewatsel, Leh, Ladakh, India to inaugurate the Golden Jubilee celebrations and the Great Summer Debate.
A large crowd of 15,000 people gathered to welcome His Holiness as he was escorted to the stage, which was covered by a canopy. He began the ceremony by paying respects to a statue of the Buddha and lighting a lamp to mark the occasion.
Following this, he unveiled a plaque to commemorate the inauguration of the 14th Dalai Lama Open Stadium and released several books and the Golden Jubilee program.
As he made his way towards the front of the stage, he greeted some of his old acquaintances before waving to the crowd.
