Dalai Lama prays for Aung San Suu Kyi as her birthday approaches

The Democratice Voice of Burma today ran this piece out of Oslo where, depending on the source, the Dalai Lama is visiting for two or three days:

Exiled Tibet spiritual leader His Highness Dalai Lama told DVB, on 15 June, that He is always praying for Burma’s [i] democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi [i] and He prays that she would be released soon.

His comment came four days before her birthday, during a conference in the Norwegian capital Oslo [i] where DVB is based. He expressed his pride for Aung San Suu Kyi, as a fellow Nobel Laureate, for her efforts for peace. Dalai Lama is visiting Norway for three days as part of His latest European tour.

When asked what He has to say to the generals of Burma’s military junta, State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), Dalai Lama giggled heartily and said that as Buddhists, the generals should follow the teachings of Lord Buddha in their political activities.
