The sixth edition of the three-day spiritual discourse aimed at imparting basic introduction to Buddhism and Tibetan culture to the students by Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama concluded here on Sunday.

Over 1800 Tibetan students from 82 different colleges and six schools from across the country participated in the teaching at the Tibetan Children's Village School (TCV) here.

The discourse was organized by Buddhism Organizing Committee.

The Dalai Lama also gave the graduation degrees to Buddhists monks.

"This is an annual discourse that his holiness gives to young students, because he feels it's very important that they should understand their own religion and culture," said Lhakdor, a Buddhist monk. (ANI)
