- Story Text:Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, in a message to China on Wednesday (December 25) said they may have gun power, but Tibetans have truth, and in long run truth is stronger than gun.
Dalai Lama is currently at the Buddhist pilgrimage site of Bodh Gaya in northern India for a two-day visit.
The Dalai Lama fled from Lhasa for asylum in India in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule. He has since lived mostly in the northern hill town of Dharamsala, where his supporters run a small government in exile and advocate Tibet's autonomy by peaceful means.
The 84-year-old was recognised as the Tibetan spiritual leader at the age of 15 in the year 1959, the same year when China occupied Tibet. China had earlier called him a 'wolf in a monk's skin'.
