Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who is on a four-day private visit to Dharamsala, visited Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama at his adopted home in McLeod Ganj on Thursday.

After meeting the Dalai Lama, Tendulkar said that he felt ecstatic to seek the Tibetan leader’s blessing, adding that the duo talked about spreading happiness and communal harmony.

The spiritual leader lives above the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium ground, where Tendulkar will once again visit on the final day of his visit.
