D. Lama Back In D-Sala

File under: The Siddhi of PR

The Dalai Lama spent yesterday in the hospital, admitted after a heart attack scare. Today he's back at home (away from home), getting ready for a quick tour of Europe.

We've got to hand it to the D. L., he's a trooper. And most of the time, we're pleased with the way he comports himself. There's no miracle mongering (although it's certainly built into his religion,) no predictions of the future, just a friendly smile and some words of peace. Given, we don't know the behind-the-screen scene. But generally, the D. L. doesn't seem to produce much in the way of clarity-clogging clouds of belief about the "result" of enlightenment, and that puts him way ahead of almost every other world-famous guru on the planet. The turban is off for the D. L. Here's to 30 more years of him kicking it real and clear.
