DHARAMSHALA, November 8: The Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama arrived in Mongolian capital Ulan Bator Monday on a three day visit, that has been kept confidential by the organisers until the last minute to avoid angering China.

The Dalai Lama is expected to hold several public lectures and meet with Buddhist leaders of Mongolia.

During the Tibetan leader’s last trip to Mongolia in 2002, China cut
off all train links to the country for two days in an apparent retaliation for inviting the Dalai Lama, reviled by Beijing as “a splittist”.

"This morning, an Air China flight bound for the Mongolian capital was
delayed. Officials in Beijing said weather conditions were poor,
despite sunshine in Ulan Bator," reported the BBC news service on

The Mongolian government has said that the visit is neither political nor official but a religious visit on the invitation of the Dalai Lama’s devotees in Mongolia.

However, according to government sources, the president of Mongolia is likely to meet the Tibetan spiritual leader.

Historically, Tibetans and Mongolians share a long history of priest – patron relationship. In 1578 the Mongol ruler Altan Khan bestowed the title Dalai Lama meaning ‘Ocean of Wisdom’ on Sonam Gyatso, the third in the lineage of the Dalai Lamas.
