Every year different groups from around the world ask H.H. the Dalia Lama for teachings, whether on Introduction to Buddhism or Training of Mind, Peace, analysis of religious texts, etc. Most of these teachings happen here in Dharamsala at his temple. With every teaching initiated, local Tibetans will be there for his blessing, tourists will be there who are either interested in Buddhism or wanting to experience a different culture. Lots of domestic tourists (mostly Indian) come as well; wanting to see the “Dalai Lama” they have always heard of.
