DHARAMSHALA: The Tibetan New Year begins with Tsedhor, the official religious ceremony attended by the officials of the Central Tibetan Administration. His Holiness the Dalai Lama presides over the religious ceremony on the rooftop of Tsuglha khang, Main Cathedral in Dharamshala. 

 After the religious ceremony, the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile started A Day long Solidarity Hunger Strike for the victims of Chinese police firing and Self Immolations in Tibet at Tsuglha khang courtyard. Head of the three pillars of Central Tibetan Administration, Parliamentarians, officials of Central Tibetan Administration, and hundreds of public gathered to observe the hunger strike. The Speaker of the Parliament, Mr. Penpa Tsering delivered the Losar Message

 Earlier in his Losar Message, Kalon Tripa strongly urged all the Tibetans not to celebrate this year’s Losar, but to observe traditionally and spiritually by offering prayers to all the Tibetans, who had sacrificed and are suffering under the repressive policies of China.

 In Dharamshala, Losar celebration is not visible as it is silently observed to show solidarity with the Tibetans inside Tibet. Whereas in Tibet, it is reported that the Lhasa Authority is forcing Tibetan officials and public to perform dances to celebrate Losar. If they fail to oblige with the orders, they are subjected to punishable. The Lhasa authority is also restricting the mobility of Tibetan pilgrims visiting Lhasa with tightened security.
