Have you heard of the Dalai Lama? - He's coming to Derry

The Tibetan spiritual leader will be guest of Derry-based charity Children in Crossfire when he travels to Northern Ireland in April. Hopefully this time he'll be afforded a more universally Irish welcome. The Nobel Peace Prize winner wasn't everyone's cup of tea when he visited Belfast in 2000.

Chris McGimpsey said he admired the Dalai Lama but was disappointed he had met only one side of the conflict in west Belfast even though the fact of the matter was he walked through the peaceline dividing the Shankill from the Falls Road.

Sammy Wilson went further and seemed to imply The 14th Dalai Lama was as about as welcome in Belfast as Rihanna would be taking her bra off in a DUP man's field. He astoundingly embarrassed himself, his party and electorate by claiming people in Belfast wouldn't know who the Dalai Lama is.(I $hit you not):

Mr Wilson said: "I don't think many people in Belfast know who the Dalai Lama is. I don't know anything about the man or his teachings, and I've never had much of an interest in the affairs of his country. I think people can afford to be a bit cynical; I certainly am." :shock:

Read a book you ignoramus.

He went on to as he plant trees on both sides of the divide and spoke highly of his experience in Belfast. He will be guest of honour at an event called Culture of Compassion at the Vital Venue in Ebrington in the city, returning to Derry to for the first time in six years.

They grew into beautiful butterflies. :roll:
I've had encounters with his followers. A bigger bunch of self centred, self obsessed tosses you could not hope to meet.

I wouldn't want to generalize all Buddhists, indeed many Japanese Buddhists are considered to be quite modest and polite.

However, That comment just reminds me of this.

I always assumed a Dalai Lama was some sort of animal, some sort of prey like?

As for Sammy Wilson, ever see Ali-g asking him was he on holiday?:)
