    My favorite part of the Dalai Lama is he's basically the real life Doctor Who. He reincarnates, is the same person (kinda) but his personality and tastes are all changed but he's still generally an incredible force for good.

    I'm a big fan of Oliver but he was ill-informed (I guess) when making fun of Yoga and the Dalai Lama. Yoga (unlike Zumba) is not about fitness or stretching, it is deeply rooted in Eastern religious schools. While this aspect is perhaps not very much emphasized by Western Yoga practitioners the Dalai Lama, being the head (think "pope") of Tibetan Buddhism, certainly is aware of this and has likely spoken about these aspects.
    DISCLAIMER: As an atheist, I don't care much about the religious aspects of Yoga (and I'm not even practicing Yoga myself); just wanted to point this out. :-)

    Have you ever seen a political or spiritual leader acting like that in an interview? He is laughing. He listens and isn't afraid to respectfully call the interviewer out when needed. And he shows true respect and deference (at 18:38), while others hardly hide their disgust at shaking a journalist' hand.

    Yo, probably not the best idea to include Taiwan on that "China" map at 3:37. It's kind of a sensitive issue.
    (Also, calling the Dalai Lama a "Cross between a Pope and a President" is probably unnecessary, considering the Pope is already the political leader of a country)

    Tibetan people are not Chinese and they have suffered land grabs over the years. China was a quarter the size it was. They stole parts of India too. Now if Tibetan Buddhism was respected I think there would have been less of an issue. Tibet was good as a buffer state between the two powerful nations of India and China. Because it pointed weapons at India in an imperialist move India has weapons pointed out at China. China at first helped the self hating Indians known as Pakistanis . So China are not the good guys here. A few from the west have Chinese wives and girlfriends and this has made them pro China though they won’t admit the truth. China is the Chinese empire now. Funny how they complain about the Japanese invading them. Well good on you Japan.

    Dalai Lama = Yoda IRL.
    when you're a cheat running a scam, you fear someone speaking the truth, and want to silence them. That's why china govt fears the dalai, and wants him dead. But they can't, so they constantly defame and criminalise him.

    its amazing to see how humble and also funny such a respected religious leader can be. Not only that but hes so easy to understand and relate to. Im not going to lie I knew litterally nothing about the dalai lama before watching this video, as one who doesnt engage in any religious practice myself. However the way he conveys his religious ideas even to a completely ignorant fool like me made complete sense, and are things that i would do well to live by even as an atheist. You would think a comedian interviewing a highly respected religious leader would result in a highly awkward video, but instead resulted in a very interesting and amusing piece.

    As an idea of what might happen after the death of the current Dalai Lama, look up the Anti-Pope. Specifically the time that the Anti-Pope drove the 'rightful Pope' out of Rome. To give a brief idea of the consequences, the First Crusade happened soon afterwards.

    So... I get why the Dalai Lama had to flee. After all, he's an important political figure that gives his people a reason for hope, as well as a spiritual leader for a sizeable religion. But didn't anyone think the kid was also pretty important to the future Buddist religion? Without him, how will they find the true Dalai Lama when the time comes?

    This video is so biased. Look at his logic! He basically admitted that Tibetan should set themselves on fire and take advantage of these poor people to divide China. Historically, Tibet has been under the control of Beijing government for hundreds of years, and in the 1950s, what Chinese did was ending slavery in Tibet, not invading Tibet. If u ask a real Tibetan, I'm pretty sure that they don't want to be separated from China. Don't be blinded by the propaganda.
