Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A day after his arrival, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama greeted with the Mongolian faithful at the Gandantegchinlen Monastery, the center for Buddhism in Mongolia, on Saturday. On the next day, His Holiness delivered a unique teaching for his Mongolian followers. The teaching was attended by over 10 thousand people, jammed in the 5000-seat sports complex of Buyant Ukhaa.

“Tibetans and Mongolians have a long history of spiritual bonds. I admire Your (Mongolian Buddhists) strong and invincible faith. I have been to many highly developed countries. Development brings peace in the five senses, but fails in achieving inner peace. Having inner peace is essential to all”, said the Dalai Lama.

The purpose of his teaching in Ulaanbaatar was to enhance Mongolia’s benefaction, and therefore, to diminish the obstacles and traverses in Mongolia’s way to prosperity.

The Dalai Lama is taking part in the discussion called “Science and Teachings of the Buddha” at the Corporate Hotel at the moment.
