Kathmandu: The foremost leader of a Buddhist sect says the Bodh Gaya bombing in India “is a kind of warning” and Buddhists around the world will have to be careful. “Bodh Gaya bombing is a kind of warning, a lesson. It’s an alarm,” said Gyalwang Drukpa, who heads the Drukpa sect of Buddhism with wide following in Tibet, Bhutan and northern India among others.
“We as Buddhists have to be careful. We should not be naughty. Not to be violent,” the India-born monk, who counts the Dalai Lama as one of his gurus, told IANS here. A series of 10 bombs went off in quick succession July 7 at Bodh Gaya in Bihar (where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment), injuring two visitors but creating a major scare. (IANS)
