Over 50,000 people from all over the world are expected to assemble at Bodh Gaya’s Kalachakra ground to hear a discourse by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, IANS report said.

Thousands of Tibetans have already arrived in Bodh Gaya from all across India to attend His Holiness Dalai Lama’s teachings. A local police officer said Bodh Gaya has turned into a mini-Tibet with the huge gathering of Tibetans.

The 1,500-years-old holiest Buddhist shrine Mahabodhi temple at Bodh Gaya, 110 km from Patna, is where the Buddha attained enlightenment 2,550 years ago.
