Lions Roar : March 2008
SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2008 42 IT WAS AUTUMN 1979. Tense times. President Jimmy Carter was reeling from stagflation, the energy crisis, and the Iranian revolution. After being rebuffed by the State Department for six years because of the “inconvenience” a visit would cause for Sino-American relations, His Holiness the Dalai Lama was finally allowed to enter the country. He began his twenty-two-city, seven-week tour of the United States with an address in St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, and shortly thereafter entered the nation’s capital for the first time. In those days, no books by the Dalai Lama filled the shelves. No Nobel Peace Prize. No White House grip and grin. No meetings with scientists. No Inter- national Campaign for Tibet. Hoary fifties-era high school geography tales of the god-king of Shangri-la preceded him. He came in on little cat’s feet. Not a god-king, he told crowds. “I am a human being,” he said, “a Buddhist monk.” The world’s most famous “simple monk” is far from simple and more than just a monk.
