Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Wednesday attended a prayer meeting at the Urgelling monastery on the fourth day of his visit in Tawang.

The Dalai Lama blessed the nearly one hundred monks who were present at the monastery to receive him.

The spiritual leader went around 'thangkas' (Tibetan paintings) inside the monastery.

The Dalai Lama arrived here on Sunday on a four-day visit to Arunachal Pradesh after a gap of six years. His visit also marks 50 years of his escape from Tibet after a failed uprising against the Chinese rule there.
