Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama has marked his 87th birthday by inaugurating a library and museum in his hillside Indian headquarters.

DHARMSALA, India -- Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama marked his 87th birthday on Wednesday by inaugurating a library and museum in his hillside Indian headquarters.

The Dalai Lama Library and Museum contain artifacts, his teachings, and books on his life and struggle for Tibetan autonomy and protection of its native Buddhist culture.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the Dalai Lama by phone and wished him well on his birthday.

This is the second time Modi has publicly confirmed speaking with the Dalai Lama since becoming prime minister in 2014.

The Dalai Lama has made the hillside town of Dharmsala his headquarters since fleeing from Tibet after a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959.

The Dalai Lama denies being a separatist and says he only advocates substantial autonomy and protection of Tibet’s native Buddhist culture. »
