Washington (CNN) - Meeting with top U.S. lawmakers a day after his 76th birthday, the Dalai Lama cited the principle of church-state separation in his recent decision to step down as the political head of an exiled movement.
"The religious institution, the leader of the religious, and the political leadership, should be separate," he told the legislators during an appearance Thursday in the Capitol. "I myself combine! So my statement, my explanation, become like hypocrisy. Saying something, doing something different."
for Advise on Debt Ceiling? For cutting Medicare, and Social Security which this nation needs desperately? To learn how to practice Yoga??????
Pres. Obama, please do not even negotiate on Medicare, and Social Security. GOP idiots play drama. Nation needs Medicare, and Social Security. Folks, vote these GOP thugs out of office. This way we win.....Obama2012! God bless him....
Boehner is so uncomfortable standing next to someone with a WORKING MORAL COMPASS. The Lama should take him golfing and use him as his caddy. Maybe then he'll receive total consciousness.
