The Dalai Lama, Again

Via USA Today:

Usually what we hear from the Dalai Lama is an insistant yet soothing voice for compassion and peace. So Tsering Namgyal, a journalist based in Minneapolis, was jolted by the Dalai Lama’s talk to 150 Chinese students this month at the University of Minnesota. Writing at Religion Dispatches, he says:

“Midway through the conversation, His Holiness, much to their surprise, told them ‘as far as socio-political beliefs are concerned, I consider myself a Marxist … But not a Leninist’, he clarified.”

Well, I suppose that we should be grateful for the clarification…

    Why would he be jolted? The Dali Lana has said this a dozen times before. If you have done any research into his beliefs he should of already known this. This is simply bad reporting.

    well, certainly the journalist doesn’t read this blog…

  3. I always suspected the Dalai Llama was a moral monster.
