LEH: Prime Minister, Narendra Modi was briefed about the various humanitarian and spiritual programmes undertaken by Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre (MIMC) Leh and he was extended an invitation to visit Ladakh and lead the International Yoga Day in Ladakh this June. The Prime Minister has shown his willingness to come and we hope this will materialize as Ladakh is one of the best places for Meditation and Yoga.
Founder-President MIMC Bhikkhu Sanghasena told this at a press conference on Wednesday that was organised on Mahabodhi Campus to highlight some of the major national and international events that Mahabodhi has hosted in the last few months and also to brief about upcoming events. Bhikkhu Sanghasena had called on the Prime Minister last month and besides briefing him about humanitarian and spiritual programmes of MIMC, an invitation was extended to him to lead the Intentional Yoga Day this year in Ladakh.
Among the upcoming major events, MIMC in collaboration with the Buddhist devotees of Taiwan is all set to organise an international Sanghadana at the Mahabodhi Devachan campus in Leh later this year which is expected to be attended by more than 2,000 monks and nuns from all over Ladakh.
Tsewang Dolma, Choldan and Tashi who participated in an International Buddhist Youth Exchange Programme titled “Jambudvipa-Suvarnabhumi Buddhist Youth Exchange Programme” in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand also spoke on the occasion and called the programme a life changing experience and turning point for transformation in life. Former MLA Tsering Samphel and Padmashri Morup Namgyal were also present.
