The Tibetan spiritual leader has written to Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi expressing his concerns over the outbreak of communal violence in Burma.

In a letter, the Dalai Lama said that he was “deeply saddened” by the violence inflicted on residents of the region.

Speaking to reporters recently, the Dalai Lama also condemned the ethnic violence in Assam and urged everyone to practice religious harmony and nonviolence.

For thousands of years, India has had a culture of nonviolence and harmony with all religions, he said, which must be maintained.
