    A truly wonderful philosophy is a philosophy which leaves you speechless. Ironical philosophy: First Tibet needs to learn how to be one with China, and after that Tibet can learn how to be one with everything... Buddha said: "Suffering arises from attachment to desires. Suffering ceases when attachment to desire ceases. "Tibet desires independence from China, which causes suffering to Tibet. The main cause of suffering in Tibet is a desire of independence which means that if Tibet were to stop desiring independence from China then the main cause of suffering in Tibet would cease to exist.In similar way Scotland has a desire to become an independent country from England.

    Nice one. The joke was funny and that the Lama not getting the point made it even funnier. The Dalai Lama isn`t the brightest light that`s for sure.

    That's because oneness is a central Hindu concept not a Buddhist one! I think the equivalent Buddhist concept is emptiness! If you had joked about emptiness he would've got it right away!

    He forgot the last bit about how after being ripped off the guy is told "your change only comes from within".
