Happy Birthday to His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Today is the Dalai Lama's 76th birthday, everyone here at the West Wight Sangha wishes his Holiness a joyful day and many happy returns.

Exiled Tibetans living in Nepal were prevented from celebrating the birthday. Following pressure from its northern neighbour to prevent any anti-China protests
during the festivities, Nepali authorities made stringent security arrangements at places where Tibetan refugees reside.

Police personnel closed the main entrance to Namgyal School, the main venue of the celebrations in Kathmandu, early on Wednesday morning preventing the entry of many well-wishers who had turned up for the celebrations.
