Followers of spiritual leader Dalai Lama recently celebrated his birthday at the Kalchakra Monastery in West Bengal’s Siliguri city.

Earlier, Lama's followers had said July 6 will be observed by them as ‘Universal Day of Compassion’.

It will mark the remembering of Lama's contribution to the global mission for peace and harmony among humankind.

Prior to this, the Asian Buddhist Conference for Peace (ABCP) unanimously declared July 6 as the ‘Universal Day of Compassion’ in 2024, reported ANI.

The followers of the Tibetan leader celebrated the occasion on by offering prayer for his long life.

They also cut cake to celebrate Lama's birthday.

Himalayan Buddhist Cultural organisation, Chief Secretary, Sanam Ninduk Lama told ANI that July 6 will now be celebrated as ‘Universal Day of Compassion.’

Sanam Ninduk Lama said, “We are celebrating Dalai Lama’s 89th birthday. We celebrate it every year…Now, every year, this day will be celebrated as ‘Universal Day of Compassion.’ We are very happy. We have been preparing for this celebration for the past month, including the children, parents and school children.”
