In a video that went viral two years ago, Dalai Lama was seen pulling the beard of the Yoga guru. The Yoga Guru then showed him his Yoga poses gaining applause from the spiritual leader. Both the leaders met at the World Peace and Harmony Conclave in Mumbai in 2017. Below is the video that went viral back in 2017.
Speaking at the event in Delhi on Wednesday, the Dalai Lama asserted the importance of peace and harmony and condemned killing in name of religion. “These days in the name of religion, people fight and kill each other, this is very sad, this is unthinkable. All traditions sends a message of love kindness, forgiveness, tolerance. Religious harmony is very important." "It is very possible to develop religious harmony and now India is one living example," he added.
