Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Tuesday said India was the only country where all major religions exist cohesively though some "mischievous individuals" try to affect the harmony among the people.

He was speaking during his three-day teaching of Shantideva's Bodhicharyavatara at Thekchen Ch ling, Tsuglakhang, the main temple in McLeodganj in Dharamsala.

"It is practical to have differences in our faith, however, the most important thing is to be warm -hearted, compassionate and lovable," the Dalai Lama said adding some "mischievous individuals" were creating trouble in the name of faith.

The session was attended by around 8,000 people from 78 countries, including 1200 from Nalanda Shiksha Sanshtan.
