The Organizing Committee of the 34th Kalachakra Initiation in Bodhgaya convened a press conference mainly to refute the reports that appeared in some of the Hindi papers including Hindustan Times reporting the Dalai Lama has made a statement saying Buddha Shakyamuni was incarnation of Vishnu.
The Chairperson of the Organizing Committee of Kalachakra in Bodhgaya and Minister of Department of Religion and Culture, Kalon Karma Gelek Yuthok categorically denied Tibet's spiritual leader having made such a statement.
"We would like to say that His Holiness has never made any statement like this. We categorically deny this report," says Kalon Yuthak while addressing the press conference. And also continued that because of that report the Neo-Buddhists in India called Dalits have demanded the Dalai Lama to clear the statement if made so.
