Medal for Dalajlama

Postby LadyMacbeth » Thu Oct 18, 2007 8:53 am

Hello :)

Dalajlama got a medal yesterday. I watched whole ceremony. He had a helper to read the text properly. How nice. I wonder how old is he. He came to monastery when he was 4. A little kid.


He is a piece of news... :roll:
Dalajlama got a medal in US

PS. How much do they pay for such US medals? :roll:

DalaI Lama is his title, not Dalajlama. And what award from the US? Is it the Noble Peace Prize he won long time ago they're mentioning here? I know he visited the White House because baby Bush invited him. It was more of a dinner invitation than an official meeting between two leaders since Bush's Ad. didn't wanna upset China, a big whiny baby. :roll:

I would like to know who paid for his trip to US? US?
I hope so :roll:

Well... somehow still I think Bush isn't any baby.
US simply cares about economy.
By the way - are we allowed to write here about...economy? Or rather not... :roll:
And about future? US cares about their future.
Other nations are much more carefree... well, they can afford it, I guess... :roll:

Interestingly, first I thought that LM was not really serious about it and it was sort of a joke. Then I opened Wikipedia and read about Tibet Autonomous Region. Surprisingly I knew the following piece of news.

Wikipedia wrote:The New York Times reported on October 2, 1998 that the Dalai Lama's administration acknowledged that it received $1.7 million a year in the 1960s from the CIA, but denied reports that the Tibetan leader benefited personally from an annual subsidy of $180,000.


So, maybe he still has some funding from the US.
