The Dalai Lama on Studio 360

The Dalai Lama and Me

The Dalai Lama has lived most of his life in exile outside his Tibet, which has been controlled by China since just after the communist revolution. He’s become a kind of superstar in the West, not by lecturing on Buddhist enlightenment, but by preaching tolerance. The writer Pico Iyer has known the Dalai Lama for years, and tells Kurt about his new book about him called The Open Road.
