Over the past 20 years, since the only visit by the Dalai Lama to the republic, many temples, prayer houses, stupas and prayer wheels have been erected here, the authors said.
"For us it is very important that His Holiness Dalai Lama bless the recreated shrines of Tuva by endowing them with new spiritual force," the letter said.
Also, the republic is building Russia's biggest statue of Shakyamuni Buddha on top of the holy Tuvan Dogee Mountain and is planning to erect a new main Tuvan temple in the center of Kyzyl that will become a symbol of unity of all Tuvan Buddhists, the Tuvan Buddhist leaders said.
"It appears to us extremely important to have the construction site for the new main Tuvan temple blessed by our spiritual leader, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama," the letter said.
In March 2011, the Dalai Lama officially stepped down as the political leader of the Tibetan government in exile and "has since conducted his activity solely in the status of the spiritual leader of one of the greatest world religions," the authors also said.
