    Background: RETURNING FROM A TOUR OF TIBETAN REFUGEE CAMPS IN SOUTH INDIA, THE DALAI LAMA ARRIVED BY TRAIN IN NEW DELHI MARCH 25 AND HAD HIS FOURTH MEETING WITH INDIAN PRIME MINISTER NEHRU SINCE FLEEING LHASA IN 1959.

    HUNDREDS OF TIBETAN REFUGEES HAD GATHERED AT THE RAILWAY STATION TO WELCOME THE "LIVING BUDDHA". SMALL CHILDREN HELD BURNING INCENSE STICKS, AND SPRINKLED ROSE PETALS IN HIS PATH AS HE LEFT THE PLATFORM FOR HIS CAR.

    DURING THEIR HOUR-LONG TALK, AT THE MINISTRY FOR EXTERNAL AFFAIRS, MR. NEHRU AND THE DALAI LAMA ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE DISCUSSED DEVELOPMENTS IN TIBET, INCLUDING THE RECENT CHINESE OFFER TO CONCLUDE A FESH TREATY ON INDO-TIBETAN TRADE TO REPLACE THE EXISTING ONE WHEN IT EXPIRES IN JUNE.

    ON LEAVING, AFTER THE MEETING, THE DALAI LAMA SAID HE HAD NO PLANS FOR LEAVING HIS INDIAN EXILE IN THE NEAR FUTURE, AND DESCRIBED THE TALKS AS "PLEASING", BUT REFUSED TO GIVE DETAILS.
