Dalai Lama Photo Exhibition in Russian Buddhist Republic of Tuva

“The Dalai Lama – As Long As Space Remains” photo session conveying the Nobel Laureate’s message of peace, compassion, and hope has been on display in Tuva, the capital city of the Russian Buddhist Republic.

The exhibition, which was timed to coincide with the celebration of Tibetan New Year Losar, also called Shagaa in Tuvan language was supported by the head of the Republic of Tuva, Mr. Sholban Kara-ool.

Tibet’s spiritual leader has visited the city of Tuva only once over twenty five years ago since his subsequent request for a Russian entry visa has been declined by the federal authorities because of its close ties with China.

Listen to reporter Gyaltsen Tsering’s piece on the photo exhibition in Tuva below.
