"We urge India to see clearly anti-China and split nature of Dalai group and honor its commitment on Tibet", China's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying said during her regular press briefing while responding to a question about Dalai Lama's participation in a recently held conference on Buddhism in India.

In his opening address, the Dalai Lama told Buddhist delegates and experts from 35 countries that all religions share one principle - love and compassion - and that all must promote religious harmony in order to overcome both historical and current problems created in the name of religion.

Buddhist spiritual leader Dalai Lama inaugurated the three-day International Buddhist Conclave at Rajgir International Convention Centre Nalanda (RICC Nalanda), in Bihar, on Friday, according to media reports.

Buddhist monks and scholars from various countries participated in the seminar on Buddhism in the 21st century.

School officials said it is a regular classroom that can be used for other activities at certain times during the day. Without access to a prayer room, Muslim students would have to leave the school for prayer sessions.

Ms. Hua said that the Dalai Lama - the Tibetan leader in exile - also shared the stage with Indian government officials and delivered a speech. Mukherjee met with the Dalai Lama in December, causing China to say it was "strongly dissatisfied".

China lashed out at India on Monday for inviting Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama to attend and speak at an global Buddhist seminar in Bihar, sponsored by the Central government, saying New Delhi was acting against one of Beijing's "core concerns".

Union Minister of State for Culture Tourism (Independent Charge) Dr Mahesh Sharma was also present at the inauguration.

Earlier this month, China had objected to India permitting the Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh which it regards as Southern Tibet. "China is strongly opposed to Dalai visiting disputed areas", he said. "India is fully aware of the seriousness of the Dalai Lama issue and the sensitivity of the China-India border question. The Dalai clique has always been engaging in anti-China separatist activities and its record on the border question is not that good", he had said.
