I met Desmond Tutu quite by accident one day. I know he and 14th Dalai Lama are very good friends. I have to admit that being in Tutus presence is very powerful. He is really an amazing person.

Thank you for the information Drolma.

I sometimes wonder who Tutu may have been in a past life. There's something practically dharmic about him. And the two of them seem to really know each other, at some deep level...



Or... maybe what they both know is something that transcends the idea of "other"...?
