April 6th 2010

Maribor, Slovenia, April 5th, 2010.  His Holiness the Dalai Lama arrived today in Slovenia from India.  On His Holiness’s arrival at Ljubljana airport, a TV journalist asked His Holiness, “You are very popular in Slovenia and also in the Western World, how do you comment on that?”

“I don’t care,” said His Holiness the Dalai Lama. “My real concern is whether I myself can (do) something useful for other people. That is all. We all have the same potential. Now let us live harmoniously and with mutual respect.”
