When it comes to His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, Darjeeling has always been his favorite spot of visit from decades. He has been visiting Darjeeling for a very very long time.
I too got a chance to get close to him once and the divine presence was felt as soon as I saw him. This was quite sometime back. I presented him a silken scarf which all do and he gave it back to me. Its still with me.
However these photos posted below are not mine, it was clicked by my friend Joseph Thapa, now settled in Italy. Thanks Joseph if you are reading this. Thanks for your permission to publish it.
