4 Apr 2017

Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has flagged off Anshu Jamsenpa's Double Ascent Mt Everest Expedition 2017 and personally blessed the mountaineer from Arunachal Pradesh. The Dalai Lama, familiar with Anshu's mountaineering feat, said at a special audience in Guwahati on Monday, "your achievement is the testimony of your hard work, firm determination and a strong belief in yourself". He hugged her warmly and blessed her when Anshu sought his blessings for her future endeavours. Arunachal Mountaineering and Adventure Sports Association president Tsering Wange offered the Indian Tricolor to the Dalai Lama, who handed it over to Anshu to be unfurled atop the Mt Everest.
