Aha... that would be very apt. What better way to free oneself!

Dalai Lama laying rubber by doing donuts...That was hilarious. You should write more, DD. What was even more hilarious was Samurai half-believing it.

DD, you should challenge the sadhu to a drag race the next time you meet.

I want you all to know I reach this height of dissolution without the aid of herbal essence or any outside influence.

The trouble with challenging sadhus is that they will drag you UP to their esoteric levels, and beat (as in defeat) you soundly at what they do best - religion.

Excellent.

I really admire the Dali Lama as one of the world's greatest men --- and one of the reasons I so admire him is I think that this story might well make him laugh!

I'm sure he doesn't take the VIP guard because he wants to be treated like a VIP. Such security was not always necessary (sad that it is now). He used to travel by ordinary public transport when visiting UK: a friend of mine was lucky enough to find herself sitting next to him on a train!

By the way, how did he get on in the Olympics? I really avoided following it, being a very not-sportsperson, but I suspect I might have seen it in the news if he had won a medal in the pole vaulting! Or was his win just suppressed by the Chinese Government?

This 1966 Land Rover 88" Station Wagon (RHD) was previously the official car of the Dalai Lama and was up for sale on e-bay.

Well, then you just elevated my already heightened respect for your sense of humour by another few notches.

Today's media carries reports of the Dalai Lama expressing his wish to retire. He wants to simply give up the mission to convince the Chinese to free Tibet!

I was wondering if this thread had something to do with it. He just might have been inspired by a life of becoming one with nature as you blast around bends in a Healey!

I also believe the following observation of Dan's was the final nail in the...

"Chinese authorities issued a statement in reply to the incident to the effect that Tibet can not be considered an independent nation because it does not produce its own automobiles"
