Dharamshala: This morning, His Holiness the Dalai Lama performed the Heruk (Tibetan: Dechok) initiation in Garshia, Lahoul and Spiti district, as he continued his teaching tour of Himachal Pradesh, north India. Over 5,000 people attended the event, including Chinese and other foreign devotees.

His Holiness spoke on religious conversion, saying, I have heard many local people of Lahaul and Kullu used to be Buddhist but have now converted to Hinduism. "people who follow any religion, it is better to keep the ancestors' religion and follow it. Religious conversion brings complications and difficulties."

Tomorrow, His Holiness will conduct the Avalokiteshvara empowerment ritual, receive a ‘long-life' offering from the audience and attend a press conference.
