    Dalai Lama Offers Woods Buddhism Advice After Asking, 'Tiger Who?'

    LOL, I guess the Dalai Lama doesn't follow golf.

    Tibet's exiled spiritual leader told The Associated Press during a brief interview in his hotel suite in Beverly Hills that he had not heard of Woods, but when the circumstances were explained to him he said that when it comes to adultery, "all religions have the same idea."

    "Whether you call it Buddhism or another religion, self-discipline, that's important," he said. "Self-discipline with awareness of consequences."

    I'm more surprised that people have actually expected the Dalai Lama to know who some golf champion is.

    Why are you surprised? His Holiness doesn't live in a cave and Tiger Woods is extremely well known.

    His Modesty doesn't live with Osama indeed, but Woody is far from being a Tibetan Idol.

    I've actually had the pleasure of meeting His Holiness at a speaking event. I was very impressed.

    Pertaining to the topic, I am not surprised that the Dalai Lama has no idea who Tiger Woods is or what he has accomplished. The Dalai Lama has a lot on his plate, and keeping up with American sports stars is certainly not a priority.

    "After the Dalai Lama's advice to Woods regarding his adultery, the Dalai Lama lit up a fat doobie and listened to 'Buffalo Soldier' on his third generation Apple Ipod".

    I too got to hear him speak (didn't get to meet him), but I still get chills to this day thinking about listening to him speak. What a remarkable, remarkable man.

    And yeah, freeing a nation is probably a little higher priority than knowing golf stars.

    My sentiments exactly. I highly recommend everyone see him at least once. The reason I was able to meet him was because I was attending a local Buddhist temple and we were granted access to see him after he spoke.

    Dalai Lama I'm sure is a wonderful man with all the best intentions in the world when it comes to peace on earth goodwill toward men etc.

    It's time to start calling him the former Spiritual leader he's been out of Tibet longer than most people on this site have been alive and is out of contact with those he was forced to leave behind.

    I respect his views and believe that if the world embraced his philosophies we'd all be better off. However there is no way he can be an expert on in any position to give other than general advise to Tiger Woods who made his bad now he must sleep in it either alone or only with hos wife.

    Best. Typo. Ever.
