Top U.S. lawmakers meet with Dalai Lama

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.

So my statement, my explanation, become like hypocrisy. Saying something, doing something different."
