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…
