    6:08 idk if anyone noticed but I think there is a swastika in the top left on the sign? I’m not Indian so it may be something that’s apart of their culture and not a nazi thing but I’m not sure

    Being an Indian, I feel proud that Dalai Lama chose India as his home!

    I would have asked, "What should I do?" It's a very open ended question that I genuinely would want the answer to, no matter what it is.

    I hate when you you think of a bad question then you think of a better one after you said it

    It's kinda amazing that despite of so many changes in India's administration his asylum has never been in danger.

    I work in a psychiatric hospital and I have to say. Of all the questions I could think of watching this video. You guys hit the number one question. I call our Anxiety and Depression problem 1st world syndrome. Kind of like a person who has everything, best water to drink, never ending supply of money, anything they want in the world they can pretty much have, but they are still unhappy. That is our society today. Now, its all about me me me like the Dalai Lama said, instead of caring for each other. Our society has almost no empathy anymore. Great job guys!

    People don’t like to be reminded that there is a spirit that lives within them & that it is eternal, but they are not eternal; so they killed, as much as they could, the consciousness of that spirit. Leo Tolstoy The Gospel in Brief

    Dude, talk more about your traveling. Politics is very complicated. It's not black or white. We don't care about you because you are a politician. Don't share your views without knowing the facts. Remember that you are a 5 million followers bloggers, your wrong opinions will affect many people
