(WLUK) -- Many Green Bay Packers fans are fond of saying that God must be a Packers fan, so it's only natural that the leader of the Pack would meet with a religious leader.

According to a photo posted on the Dalai Lama's Instagram account, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers met with the Buddhist leader at his residence in India.

The photo shows the Dalai Lama wearing a Packers cap and holding a football.

According to the caption, the meeting took place Tuesday. The time zone in Dharamasala, Himachal Pradesh, India, is 10 1/2 hours ahead of Wisconsin.

The Packers' website says Rodgers and his girlfriend, Danica Patrick, are on a mission trip in India. Their trip is supporting the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which provides hearing aids to people who would not otherwise have access to them.
