Spiritual leader Dalai Lama prays for world peace in Bodh Gaya

Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama prayed for world peace on Tuesday.

About hundreds of Buddhists and followers of the Dalai Lama joined together at the Kaal Chakra Maidan (Wheel of Time Ground) in Bodh Gaya, the place where Buddha reached enlightenment, as the five-day-long 'Geluk Monlam puja (prayers)' commenced.

"Dalai Lama has given a lot of practical counsel on being kind to the people and being clear to yourself in your life thus you don't have to hide things from people because you'll have better relations with them and being unlock to them you'll have more friends," said James, a devotee from London.

Approximately 50,000 people from all over the world are expected to gather in Bodh Gaya for more than the five days to hear the Dalai Lama's conversations. During his stay the Dalai Lama would inaugurate a multimedia museum and then visit new stone carvings on Buddha's life up righted in the Mahabodhi Mahavihara locations.

The 1,500-year-old holiest Buddhist place of worship Mahabodhi temple at Bodh Gaya is where the Buddha achieved enlightenment before 2,550 years.
