Dalai Lama at Glastonbury Decries 'Unthinkable' Violence in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria

Kanye West was Glastonbury Festival's most-discussed act on Saturday, after declaring himself the greatest living rock star and giving BBC subtitle writers heart palpitations. But Sunday saw an entirely different appearance commanding the headlines.
The Dalai Lama, whose appearance at the music festival was condemned by China, used his slot to denounce terrorism and violence. He said that a lot of problems we are experiencing are our own creations. The Buddhist monk continued, "Violence is being created this very moment in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria. Humans killing each other in the name of religious faith. Unthinkable. Carry the message of love and tolerance and forgiveness."
