Why The Founding Fathers, Gandhi and the Dalai Lama Are All AGAINST Gun Control
Preface: I was raised to be against guns. My parents hated guns, and believed that they only lead to crime and to accidental shootings.

Unlikely ‘swearing’ came at the very end of a speech at Brown University on World Peace
It is a phrase you would not associate with one of the holiest men alive.
Indeed, it must have caused the stenographer a little consternation when the Dalai Lama apparently finished his speech with a very frank ‘f*** it’ to an audience of students at Brown University in Rhode Island.
Still, the stenographer had to transcribe what [...]

In an exclusive interview with this week’s Sunday Telegraph, the 76-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner, revealed he had been passed reports from inside Tibet warning that Chinese agents had trained Tibetan women for a mission to poison him while posing as devotees seeking his blessings.

“If your prime minister has some kind of spiritual interest then of course my [...]
