Dalai Lama 'votes' bipartisan

(February 21, 2014 Meeting)
If "voting with the feet" is a good indicator of how a person truly feels, then the Dalai Lama seems to favor a bipartisan approach.

The Washington Post reports that the esteemed spiritual leader helped to "open the Senate's formal proceedings" last Thursday by offering "prayers of joy, good fortune and the fulfillment of wishes."

On that same day, he met with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California).  Boehner reportedly noted that the Dalai Lama has attended "a bipartisan meeting with congressional leaders" during each of his visits to the Capitol.

The Dalai Lama not only "voted" with his bipartisan feet, but also "talked his walk" by verbally "stressing the need for political powers to work collaboratively and positively."

He included the media in this regard by pointing out their pivotal role in educating people.  The spiritual leader then added:  Sometimes the media people are only showing the negative side.  Don't do that.
