The Dalai Lama and Me


Friday, May 09, 2008

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.

An avid Studio 360 listener, I found the piece on the Dalai Lama and travel writing most intriguing. However, the piece by Handey was the dullest segment I've ever heard on public radio. Had me thinking that I must have missed something, maybe he's being clever, ironic. Nope, it was just completely uninspired.
