DHARAMSHALA : For more than a decade since his stunning escape from the Chinese-controlled Tibet, Ogeyn Trinley Dorje, has been seen in less reverential terms by the government.

He has lived under the watchful eyes of Indian intelligence agencies and his movement was restricted around his exile home in Dharamshala.

However, Dorje, the 17th reincarnation of Karmapa Lama, the head of powerful Karma Kagyu sect, has been comparatively liberated of all those restraints as India’s policy with regards to the 31-year-old spiritual leader is undergoing a paradigm transition. The government of India allowing Dorje to visit the border area Twang in Arunachal Pradesh is a sign of this policy shift. According to the reports, the schedule was enabled after the cabinet committee on security chaired by PM Narendra Modi reviewed the directive on his movement within India.
