Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama [Images] arrived in the capital on Friday to participate in a meditation workshop, which will be attended by his followers from around the world.

The Dalai Lama flew in from Dharamsala today evening to take part in the meditation workshop, which is being organised by the Foundation for Universal Responsibility.

Hollywood star Richard Gere [Images] and actress Uma Thurman's [Images] father Bob Thurman are expected to take part in the programme.

The Dalai Lama will be in the capital for ten days to take part in the meditation workshop. 

The Dalai Lama was welcomed in Delhi by approximately 150 people, most of them his followers, who wore T-shirts with the message 'Pray for Tibet'.

The organisers of the workshop said that the programme was chalked out three months ago and hence could not be seen in correlation with the ongoing protests by Tibetans against the Chinese government.

They, however, did not rule out the possibility of the Dalai Lama meeting Indian leaders during his stay in Delhi.
