He also claimed to have reiterated his stand during his recent trip to Delhi, where he called on all the important leaders of the country.

He concluded by thanking H.E. Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche for his benign presence and blessings, who in return, presented the Chief Minister with an auspicious souvenir.

Monks in Bodh Gaya also celebrated his birthday at Tergar monastery where a special cake weighing 70 pounds was savoured by young monks at the monastery.

Karma Sonam Tapke, a Buddhist monk from Arunachal Pradesh at the monastery said, “To mark the special day, the monks carried the portrait of His Holiness the Karmapa and took a procession around the monastery while chanting prayers for him.”

Pal Dilyank Monastery in Boudha, Nepal, also marked the birthday by performing a traditional masked dance.
