The ‘Zen’ Life
This small paradise on earth is home to His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama and to a significant Tibetan settlement in India. Dharamshala is set in the backdrop of the snow-clad peaks of Dhaulathar Mountains. It is the capital of the Tibetan government-in- exile and the residence of the Dalai Lama.
The aim of the project is to provide sanitation and construct a safety wall for the schools and the community.
