Dalai Lama Visits the Birthplace of Sixth Dalai Lama - 2003-05-06


The Dalai Lama visited the birthplace of the 6th Dalai Lama (1683-1706) in Monyul, in Bhutan, and also officiated at the opening of a road named after the 6th Dalai Lama, “Tsangyang Gyatso Road,” and the ceremonies at the publication of a biography of the 6th Dalai Lama by the Tsangyang Gyatso Fund. The 6th Dalai Lama was unique among the Dalai Lamas—he was a rebel from tradition and a prolific writer of romantic poetry, some of which—like the poetry of the Persian writer Rumi—has been interpreted as having a deep religious meaning. The Dalai Lama says he was pleased that the people in the area established a Tsangyang Gyatso Fund in memory of the 6th Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama also gave teachings on nonviolence.
