Politicians take note


American Congress bestowed its highest civilian honour, the Congressional Gold Medal, on the Dalai Lama yesterday in Washington. The award is in recognition of the Dalai Lama's advocacy of religious harmony, non -violence, human rights and for his efforts to find a peaceful solution to the Tibet issue.
"If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them"

A very high honour for a very worthy man.

Hurrah for the DL! Let's hope he made some useful suggestions to Bush about helping the monks in Burma

I think he is unlikely to win a Clairol award - as I have!

Certainly an honour much deserved. I'm watching 'this' space to see how this will affect the world (in respect to USA - China relations). But that's all politics; no one can argue that the Dalai Lama has done so much good.
