The Dalai Lama’s Exclusive Interview with VOA

The Dalai Lama sat down with VOA yesterday on July 12, 2011 to tell us about his life now-after he stepped down his role as the Tibetan exiled government leader. He actually reveals that he feels ” freer”. He also wanted to meet with the staff of the Mandarin service (Chinese service) because he had a special message for China. If he were ever asked to help relations with China, he said, he would. Watch the full interview here.

My coworkers have had the chance to meet and talk to the Dalai Lama back in 1997- over 14 years ago; and they remember his kindness and enthusiasm in lending a hand to his Buddhist counterparts in Burma. (picture attached) I’ve been in the same room with the Dalai Lama; and whether he is talking to you in a small conference room or to thousands of people during his meditation services, he exudes the same great aura and that special kind hearted spirit. He is unbelievably down to earth and personable- and he is also controversial to many people and nations around the world.
