Dalai Lama
(2008-04-18)
(wgvu) - ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Dalai Lama says he fully understands
the sentiments of those protesting the upcoming Olympics in China
to draw attention to the country's human rights record.
But the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader told reporters Friday he
has been sorry to see some of those demonstrations turned violent.
He spoke at a news conference to begin his weekend visit to Ann
Arbor.
Some have expressed concern that the Dalai Lama's message of
nonviolence might compete for attention with recent unrest in
Tibet, as well as the protests that have followed the Olympic
torch's passage to China.
Thousands are expected at Crisler Arena to see the Dalai Lama,
who is scheduled to give a lecture on sustainability Sunday.
He will also lead formal Buddhist teaching sessions Saturday and
Sunday.
