Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama has said that unity among all faiths is the ultimate key for universal peace
Addressing a multi-religious congregation here on Saturday, the Dalai Lama appealed to the world leaders to come forward and make the 21st century a violence-free era.
He admired the social fabric in India where people following different faiths live together peacefully.
He also appealed the people of Kishtwar to continue with their rich multi-cultural heritage and maintain religious harmony and tranquility at all costs. State chief minister Omar Abdullah termed the Dalai Lama's visit as a blessing for the society.
"Whenever you look at him you will find that there is halo in his presence, people will also receive such positive vibrations. So that's the reason I find myself and the people of my state very fortunate he has come here for us," Abdullah said.
