Describing Bodh Gaya as the “holiest of the holy place” for the Buddhists across the globe, Dalai revealed he dismantled the ‘mandala’ at Dharamsala in 1970 after a dream.

“After I gave the empowerment for the first time in India, at Dharamsala in 1970, we had already dismantled the mandala at the end when I had a dream. I dreamt that I was in the centre of the mandala with the monks around me. We were blessing the ground and intoning the invocation of the deity. I took this to indicate that I would give the empowerment over and over again. Since I first gave it in Lhasa in 1954 many people have received it from me, but I don’t know how many are actually doing the practice,” he said.

He advised the devotees to change outlook and focus on the welfare of others.
