What did he do... <shakes head and sighs>. I can't believe questions like this get more posts than my "Would you be or let your partner be a surrogate mother?" question. Hint, hint . I want some votes on this one.

Sorry Mea. He didn't DO anything bad. Emitchell is just being a dork. The Dalai Lama is in exile, because the good old Chinese government went in and threw out the Buddhists. I don't know if you heard about Buddhist monks setting themselves on fire in order to prevent the Chinese from killing them and giving themselves bad karma (yeah pretty severe). I can find you a link with more info. if you want.

Sorry, I guess I feel so passionate about it, I just assumed. Here is a good website Tibet The joke (which I hope to Buddha it is) is that the Dalai Lama is one of the most peaceful people in the world who has tried very hard to get people to resolve their issues peacefully. Even with China.

And therefore shouldn't "BE PUT" to death.
17 yrs ago - Monday 5/12/03 - 11:49:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course he should.Only the Pope should get to wear such ugly hats and live.

The Dalia Lama, being a living Buddhist God cannot be put to death. He will just move on to another incarnation.

"The Dalia Lama, being a living Buddhist God cannot be put to death." Actually, in a weird way, he's the only person that can be put to death (by his own actions), I believe. Since there are so many schools of Buddhism, I'm not sure. I think, though, that no person can really "die" unless they reach enlightenment, and I use the term "die" very loosely. I just mean that after nirvana is reached, samsara--the cycle of attachment and desire--will be extinguished and there will be no more future karmic lives to live out. In the Mahayana tradition, I think the Buddha comes back to teach people, of his own will, and that he only staged his existence as Siddhartham the first Buddha, to show the world the way to nirvana. If he wanted to, though, I guess he could be put to death, in the sense that he would never return to this world again. The rest of us are condemned to return, again and again, until we break samsara.

They would not be "put to death" though. "put to death" would be by the actions of another. Also the Dalia Lama's cycle will ensure that he remains earthbound until humanity learns from hiss example. Not all Gods are omnipotent.

Well, he can be "put to death", and then choose not to come back. I think he can stop whenever he wants. It's his choice, not that I'm terribly familiar with his metaphysical responsibilities.

Anyone who can get away with wearing a hat like that (see picture at above left) deserves to live.

NO, I think he has alot that he can teach the world if they'd listen
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 6/27/03 - 6:23:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
not if he didn't do anything wrong

Perhaps it could be a pay to view special. The Dalai Lama V The Pope in a no hats bared death match. My money is on the Dalai lama unless he suffered an unfortunate robe under foot slip incident. The pope looks pretty slow to me, although maybe he can still 'bring it' Yoda stylee.

How could anyone say that a man who has done nothing but good for others be put to death? I don't understand it.
16 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 8/2/03 - 9:34:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that is horrible I love the Dali Lami read one .5 of his books. I couldn't finish one of them b/c the library needed it back.
