The Dalai Lama

One of the Dalai Lama's pictures. This is him very happily posing for some pictures with American tourists. Later I heard one of them gushing in a squeeky, high pitched voice about how holy he looked. I beg to differ. I found him very down-to earth and ready to mingle with everyone, not like most other spiritual heads who keep their distance.

I did have a few other pictures but they looked too grainy.

From an American perspective, he does look holy. Down to earth as you put it is a great start! Who most of us see being passed off as a holy man is the made-up, hairsprayed, tearful, sixty-year old white man in a tailored suit -- the televangelist.

It's refreshing and admirable regardless of what one believes to see a person who has faith in a higher power and who lives a simple and dutiful life.
