I'm not sure if he spells his title the same as the animal.

Seems to me, the DL attracts adoring crowds in a similar way that mother Theresa did. He appeared in Glasgow a few years ago, and my daughter expressed an interest I. Going to hear him talk. She went to find more details of his visit and got back to me to say the tickets were too expensive. Well, excuse my naïveté but I thought he spoke for free.

I then went on a quest to find out a bit more about him- some balanced information. This has proved difficult to find. Everything written is either cloyingly sycholphantic or China inspired propaganda.

Then I found this, and anothe ugh it's only about one teeny incident, it's refreshing to read. Ive been looking especially for info on whe all his money goes, but I can't find anything.

Fascinating blog. Dalai Lama (not Dali Llama) seems more interested in getting back to his palace then in the welfare of the Tibetans. Are the Chinese really has benevolent as the blog claims? I remember reading about Chinese concentration camps where monks were used as forced labourers.

That's what I mean, Compo. It's so difficult to get balanced information.
