More nonsense from the Turq. Earlier this year when the lama did his "European tour" not a single head of State in ANY European country wanted to meet with him. Even most MP's didn't want to see him, and as far as I know he wasn't invited to a single Parliament in the whole of Europe. Reverend quest ? I don't think so. It was so embarrassing for the lama that when he found out that he was not welcome he quickly changed the theme of his trip to one of meetings in Buddhist centres instead. Which he did, leading the banging of bells, exchanging of scarves and some singsong. That's about it. Later it has been revealed that the lama-guy now blames the Chinese for his troubles. The Turq's distortion of how his guru is perceived is as distorted as just about everything else he writes in here.
"the Dalai Lama was and still is treated as a revered guest in almost every country he visits, meeting with Presidents and world leaders, and treated with respect." ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <turquoiseb@...> wrote : From: nablusoss1008 <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> I've said The Dolly Lama is "just a politician". And you said that because *Maharishi said it*, in exactly those words. Do you call this "never entertaining negativity?" Sounds to me as if Maharishi was just JEALOUS. And with good reason -- the Dalai Lama was and still is treated as a revered guest in almost every country he visits, meeting with Presidents and world leaders, and treated with respect. Maharishi couldn't even *enter* the United States and possibly other countries without being arrested. That's why he never left the Netherlands. I guess being a politician is better for your reputation than being a con man. :-)
