Restriction on electronic gadgets during Dalai Lama’s teachings


Any kind of electronic gadgets, including personal FM radio, will not be allowed during the teaching sessions of Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

The decision was taken during a meeting to review security of the Dalai Lama, which was held at the office of Superintendent of Police Dharamshala on August 16.

Only those FM radios which will be provided by the Tibetan Security can be used during sessions.

Superintendent of Police Balbir Thakur said that earlier some loopholes were found in the security of spiritual leaders, the Dalai Lama and the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, who are residing here, and process is on to plug them.

The police have already strengthened security panel around the Dalai Lama’s palace and the Gyuto Tantric Monastic University, where the Karmapa resides.

Ngodup Dorjee, secretary of Central Tibetan Administration’s (CTA) security wing said, “Since the government of India has extended Z-plus category security to the Dalai Lama, we have requested it to look into the feasibility to add chemical detectors to his security too”.

According to the Dalai Lama’s office the next teaching in Dharamshala is from August 25 to 27.
