SAN FRANCISCO - The Dalai Lama urged religious leaders Saturday to reach out to Muslims, saying Islam is a compassionate faith that has been unfairly maligned because of a few extremists. 'snip' He said all human beings are prone to violence if they lose control of their emotions and not to judge an entire faith based on a few people. "A few mischievous people are always there," he said.

I feel like reaching out and putting their lights out!
I don't think ol' Dali lives a spartan existence.
Hello Dalai? Living in an alternate reality where jihadists are peaceful? Or just too much time meditating with the opium pipe?
""A few mischievous people are always there,"
See? And some of us were all worked up about the "Muslim" thing.
How's that Free Tibet thing going, oh giver of knowledge?
The thing that cracks me up about the Buddha statues is that Buddhists meditate on impermanence in many of their artistic excercises, like sand mandalas, where they destroy it right after it's completed. I though the destruction of those statues was a good reminder of the impermanent nature of things. Even if they've been around thousands of years they're just as subject to decay as everything else. The world needs to get over it, I'm sure plenty of buddhists have!
OPINION: Yep, Dolly Llama is a real deep thinker.
Yeah, you beat me to it. I read that and thought, "Oh, I'll reach out to them alright..."
But he manufactures potent medicine!
"The Lamaist dispensaries bloomed splendidly. The excreta (stools and urine) of higher tulkus were manufactured into pills and sold as valuable medicines. The supreme palliative was of course the excrement of the living Buddha (Kundun). When the Fourteenth Dalai Lama was staying in China, his chamberlain collected his excrement daily in a golden pot so as to then send it to Lhasa to be manufactured into a medication (Grunfeld, 1996, p. 22).
Traditional Tibetan medicine, now on offer worldwide, and which the western admirers claim can cure cancer, had to be content with less success in its home country. The majority of the population suffered from sexual diseases. Smallpox was widespread and even the Thirteenth Dalai Lama fell victim to it."
I have seen references to this before but this was the only one that I found on Google. Does anyone know more?
Can we get the pills cheaper in Mexico?
Looks like Dali and Michael Savage share the same roots...hawking herbal remedies.
"...hawking herbal remedies."
More like hawking "hisbowel remedies"
I seriously doubt that the Dalai Lama has read the koran nor has he ever had some supernatural premonition of its contents.
The numerous passages enjoining moslems to kill non-moslems might - just might - give him pause about "reaching out" to those of this "compassionate faith."
Dali looks like the reincarnation of Hunter S.Thompson..
Peacefully meditating with a .357 magnum?
Nor does it behoove any of the rest of us to continue treating islam as though it is ammenable to polite society.
Remember, it was the moslem Turks that taught the nazis how to perform genocide by isolating huge groups of Armenians out in the desert so that they simply starved to death. The nazis used that practice as a pattern for their death camps.
The lama should get out of politics, especially since he has become a tool and a failure himself.
|So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.|
The good doctor preferred a 44 Magnum, along with some Adrenochrome..
