Jody,

 

Thanks for your reply.  I won't be ready MY LAND, MY PEOPLE, but I'm sure
it's well-written and very inspiring - although you've got to admit such a
possessively charged title is not very Buddhist-like.

 

I wish the Dalai Lama well in all of his endeavors, but in the political
case in Tibet, to me, he's just another ethnic nationalist.  I like him
better as a Buddhist teacher.

 

As far as Ghandi's quote, at least Ghandi never pretended to be a spiritual
leader - although there are many who think of his as that.  He's a true-blue
nationalist, and a successful one at that.

 

.Bill!

The Dalai Lama IS the spiritual leader AND he is the political leader of the

Tibetan people.
I suggest you read MY LAND, MY PEOPLE by the Dalai Lama and then you will 
understand.
