RE: Why the West likes the Dalai Lama
Since when does not being an asshole make you a good person? Being praised for the bare minimum sends the wrong message.

Man I hate the concept of "spiritual leader". What does that even mean? People who believe in a type of magic look to them to interpret the will or nature of that magic??

RE: Why the West likes the Dalai Lama
Hey, don't you mortals know that Dalai Lama is a walking deity, a God-King, a Jesus + Caesar, and a same sex marriage OK man since ... 1391, the year of the birth of the first Dalai Lama before he lifted His Holiness' throne and formed his divinity as a Lesser Power ?

A little more respect, please.

Want something? Then do something.

Well, he has been reincarnated many times, so he's probably been gay before.

He knows what it's like, man!

Couple of us guys in the strictly-speaking-we're-in-the-East-not-West don't mind him either.

Er...no. Buddha is not a god. There could be a couple of explanations for his phrasing it that way. His desire to be all-inclusive, his understanding that many think of the Buddha as a god, similar to the western idea of god, his lack of a full grasp of English. But my guess is, it's more important to him to get his message of loving-kindness and compassion across than it is to squabble over whether Buddha is a god or not. It's just not that important in the grand scheme of things.
