Dalai Lama Addresses RML Hospital Medical Staff


The Dalai Lama visited the Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital located in New Delhi, India in response to an invitation extended by the director, H K Kar and members of the faculty on January 20, 2015.

After seeing different departments at the hospital, the Dalai Lama delivered a talk on 'promotion of human values in the interest of human happiness and the fostering of inter-religious harmony' to a crowd of around 1000 including doctors, nurses, and students.

The facility was formerly known as the Willington Hospital, and later renamed as Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital, as a tribute to Lohia, who was a renowned socialist leader of India and a great supporter of the Tibetan cause.

There are currently 4 Tibetan nurses and 19 nursing students enrolled at the hospital.
