Arunachal Pradesh mountaineer Anshu Jamsenpa was blessed by the Dalai Lama as she sets off for her Double Ascent Mt Everest Expedition 2017.
Taking part in her flag off ceremony, the Dalai Lama said, “Your achievement is the testimony of your hard work, firm determination and a strong belief in yourself.” The spiritual guru hugged the three-time Everest conquering mountaineer and blessed her for her future endeavors.
Tsering Wange, president of Arunachal Mountaineering and Adventure Sports Association offered the Indian tri-colour flag to the Dalai Lama, which was handed over to Anshu to be unfurled at the top of the world – the Mt Everest. Anshu presented a photo frame of her earlier successful summit to the Dalai Lama as a token of love and respect.
“Meeting His Holiness, the Living Buddha, and getting his blessings in person, is one of the most treasured and blessed day of my life. I shall cherish it for life-long, especially the close warm hug. It will always motivate me and infuse strength to overcome all my struggles of life,” Anshu Jamsenpa said.
