China dubs Dalai Lama a liar after his 'parts of brain' remark

  • Watch John Oliver Interview The Dalai Lama On How China Views Him As A

Such meetings tend to be dominated by the issue of the Dalai Lama.

"The Dalai Lama's comments in the interview perhaps appeared humorous and amusing, but these words are all lies that do not accord with the facts", Geng said. "I don't know how you get it out of a horse", Oliver said.

"Whatever they want to say, I have no negative feeling".

The animosity between the two sides centres on control over Tibetan Buddhism - with reincarnation at the heart of the debate. Oliver asked the Dalai Lama why he does not condemn their actions and save the lives of these people.

The revolving cycle of successors has continues to ensure leadership within the religion. The Dalai Lama had fled to India from Tibet in 1959 through Arunachal Pradesh, and has been running the Tibetan government-in-exile from Himachal Pradesh.

The spiritual leader's quip came during a playful and insightful interview with John Oliver, host of TV show Last Week Tonight.

The sprawling home is somewhat isolated, sitting at the end of the quiet road, where it meets the Hundred Acre Cove. LaCross said it appears that Williams may have fallen and then as Haley went to call for help, she fell as well.

China insists its atheist Communist leaders have the right to approve which baby the Dalai Lama is reincarnated into.

The Global Times commentary said that Indians "overestimate the political value of the Dalai Lama and his group while miscalculating China's determination to safeguard its core interests". As Oliver detailed in an introduction to the segment, China has called the Dalai Lama "a wolf in monk's robes" and banned his image.

Oliver asked the spiritual leader why it was so hard for him to tell people to stop such a radical form of fatal protest.

The Dalai Lama didn't quite answer the question, but he did offer this piece of wisdom: "Our brain has the ability to create common sense". "In Chinese hardliners, that part of the brain is missing!"

"The goal of his visits and activities in other countries is just to promote his proposal for Tibetan independence", foreign ministry spokesperson Hong Lei had said, adding: "We hope that people from the global community can be fully aware of his true colours and nature". When the Dalai Lama talked about how Chinese authorities have called him a "demon" over the years, he basically rolled his eyes before throwing up his hands in mock horns.
