The Dalai Lama continues to be the center of attention after the embarrassing episode that took place at an event held by the M3M Foundation in a temple, when a minor approached to give the religious leader a hug and he asked him to “suck” his language.
Such an event was and continues to be criticized throughout the world and despite his apologies, thousands of users have branded the Dalai Lama a “pedophile”. However, recently a video was released in which the child talks about meeting with the spiritual leader, as he was interviewed by the Voice of Tibet the same day the incident occurred.
In this interview, the little boy recounted that having met the Dalai Lama in person “was a great experience” because of so much positive energy. In addition, he assured that he felt very happy after this situation.
It’s a very nice feeling to meet him and you get a lot of that positive energy (…) once you get the positive energy, I think you’re happier and it’s something better and you smile a lot more.
However, with the words of the minor, there are those who assure that it is precisely his innocence that does not allow him to dimension the “atrocious” of the situation.
On the other hand, all the viralization of the video of the Dalai Lama with the little boy reminded Internet users of the moment when his “naughty” behaviors, as he says in his apology, resulted in inappropriate touching of Lady Gaga.
This occurred in 2016 during a conference with mayors held in Indiana, United States. At that time, people did not pay much attention to the attitude of the religious leader, who, seeing that the singer was wearing torn pants at the knee, began to touch her leg and when she tried to touch her other leg, a little higher, she he prevented it with his hand.
Despite the fact that many years have passed since that episode, it came to light due to the incident with the minor. Due to the controversy, the religious leader issued a statement on his social networks where he apologized for his behavior and the inconvenience that this could cause both the child, his family and the general public, apologizing for being a bit of a “joker”. .
