    Holy crap! And I haven't read any comments yet... But this man actually just had the current Dalai Lama hold his hand to his face and laugh at Oliver's joke. I'll bet you that is one of the greatest moments in John's life. My respect for Oliver just increased greatly.

      Because China is a big player in the region and no one wants to get on their bad side. Just like no one is really doing anything meaningful when Russia invaded Ukraine a while back. Plenty of other examples of powerful nations abusing their power.

    "A region in south-west China." Really John? You aren't even going to say that they were an independent country within living memory?
    Also the "horse milk" he speaks of is fermented mares milk which they call something like ayrak. Its probably more alcoholic than american beer, he was trying to get them off the hard liquor and back onto their traditional beer-like drink.
    Buddhists like moderation so I bet that had something to do with his logic.

    it's quite weird to write up on a youtube comment section about this topic, and the fact that I'm Chinese is not helping. However, I'd like to point out that, Dalai Lama is not just a religious figure, but a political one too. The fact that Dalai Lama received 1.7 million annually from CIA in the 60s for training guerrilla proves nothing but there's political motivations behind his stand. What I'm trying to say is, Tibet to other parts of China, is like Scotland to England. Or, Cataluña to Spain. Imagine you are British, and you hear a Chinese guy like me, vocally admire Alex Salmond and support Scottish independence, it probably feels weird. Same goes the other way around.

    I see people saying there are both positives and negatives on Tibet in China's hand which I agree, but I from what I learnt from school when we learnt about Buddhism and the research I've done because of personal interest (which I just trying to point out this is my own opinion), could at least let the Tibetan have freedom. I really don't see how Tibetan having freedom and allowed to practice their religion is going to have a huge affect on China on having the resources other then politically (which is something I really don't want to talk about because I have absolutely no clue). If China really think Tibet is part of them (which I think is some what insane), Tibetan at least should have the rights that Chinese does. There must be a win-win way of sorting things out because tyranny does not work long when we look back at the histories of the world. Plus I really do think that 'a country' kidnapping a child, and thinking that anointing a Dalai Lama would help them control Buddhism when majority of the world knows that China is against Dalai Lame is insane.

      Either Tibetans are treated equally as any Chinese, or, at least, Tibet should be made independent even if it is in similar method as Hong Kong is 'independent'.

    another perspective from a neighbour Nepal,
    we have witnessed the crisis and have been giving shelter to thousands of Tibetans , yet have seen monks fleeing with huge wealth to India through Nepal leaving poors behind.India got Gold and diamonds from them and wealthy monks got special protection.But what about those poor tibetans living in Nepal and North india?

    around today (November-4-2017) Saturday some of us might have heard about Myanmar, Rakhine state issue. Some ask Dalai Lama about the situation but he remained silent leaving many, furious, confused and in the dark. but in this video seeing his kindness, you cant be mad at him. how can you be mad at him!? may Dalai Lama, the country of Myanmar (Burma), Buddhists, Rohinghyan (probably spelt that wrong) Muslims, the world, and John Oliver have a long peaceful and successful life.

    while the segment does do a good job of showing the issues, it's worth noting that prior to chinese control, tibet was a feudalistic society that practiced a form of legal slavery. additionally, the chinese did help contribute resources to the area through the form of electricity and railroads.

    A. Notice how the Dalai Lama says self-killing "very bad" and not "it's a sin, your soul will be damned forever"
    B. You need to try horse milk before you make assumptions, really try it.
    C. Buddhism teaches detachment from material wealth, i.e. the Dalai Lama didn't keep Roosevelt's watch and nor will he keep the calculator watch. But why bother explaining all that when you can just politely thank the gifter and let them feel good about themself.

    As a person who has practiced tibetan buddhism in China (but not-tibet), I would say there is an extent of religious freedom. We were never persecuted for our beliefs, but not supported either. Basically its a don't ask don't tell situation, and as long as you dont make it public, you are fine. This might work for now, but long-term speaking, its still far from religious-freedom (and tbh I understand why the chinese government has taken such approach because the country is still developing and needs stability).
    However, ppl in Tibet being persecuted in the 50's is a part of history that is covered up. To a lot of chinese ppl, it is hard to accept, but the government did horrible wrongs to the tibetan, just like Mao zedong starting the cultural revolution. My guru was imprisioned (and luckily escaped later), and many of the monks in his temple disappeared. This sad truth needs to be known. Maybe they are enjoying a better economy bc of the chinese gov, but there were also times that tibet and xinjiang were cut off internet, in the 2000s, which is not long ago, due to censorship and control.
    We have to admit that all gov forms, are capable of making bad decisions, in order to rectify of the damages left behind and prevent the same thing from happening again.

    it surprised me how less people know about the Tibet Buddhism, if you want to report him should also report in a full picture. Y we call him wolf in monk, he supports slavery, he skin people (90% of Tibetan is slave to him) to get bones, skin for the purpose to produce instruments, such as human skin / bones drum, tangka, you can even google it.
    The top 10% monocrats ride people as horse, take the tongue from baby girls, so when the time is coming, they can be the purest drum or other instruments ever as they never speak.
    whatever government did, I cant say it's right or wrong, it's for the country's safety, it's out of our hands. But personally, he is so disgusting, promoting an ideal of peace and love but slave his admirers from this "god chosen" system, he's the most bloody dictator but claims he is right about it. SHAMELESS!

    A lot of these comments are about how “adorable” this man is, but very few are about opposing the principle of religious control over government. Very few bother to consider how Tibet was before China liberated the area from feudal and religious subjugation and serfdom.
