Ten Questions for the Dalai Lama
Your wish is my command: applying the law of attraction
By Elizabeth Anne Hill

These were some of the issues that I often pondered. I had no idea, however, that I would get the chance to pose my questions to one of the wisest men in the world until I received an interesting job offer. An American production company wanted to hire me to shoot a commercial film about the wonders of India.

They didn't promise to pay me much money, but instead offered a rare opportunity—to meet with and interview the Dalai Lama at his home in Dharamsala, India.

I didn't have to think about the job offer for very long because I have always felt a kinship with the Tibetan leader. When other guys my age were worshipping sports heroes, I was idolizing the Dalai Lama.

Unfortunately, upon arriving in India, I discovered that no one knew anything about the purported interview.

I then realized then that I had nearly six months to figure out on my own how I was going to meet the spiritual leader.

India is a mystical place where anything can happen, so I don't know whether it was magic or fate that led me to an 80-year-old driver named Geeta Ram Ranote. He was quite an interesting character; reminding me of a genie because for every wish I had, he knew a way to make it happen.

“Geeta Ram, can we film at the Taj Mahal at sunset?”

“Yes, sir. I will reserve a space for you.”

“Geeta Ram, can we meet the President of India and

interview him?”

“No problem, sir.”

When I told him that I wished to interview the Dalai Lama, he seemed undaunted by my request and suggested that I write to his Holiness to propose a meeting. I admit that I was quite skeptical about writing a letter given my understanding of the Indian postal system. Geeta Ram explained that we would not be sending a letter but an e-mail. He just happened to have the Dalai Lama's e-mail address!

pointless

I don't understand what you want to say in this text except of that you met some old Indian that answered ok to whatever you said regardless if it was ok or not, a common phenomenon in India.

The Dalai Lama is not simply

The Dalai Lama is not simply "some old Indian." He is the spiritual leader of Hindu Buddhism and is considered as Buddha incarnate.

It is, however, not my personal experience, but of some other writer who shared his remarkable experience in another forum.

I figured that I wanted to share his story in this forum, too.

It is not pointless. The story has been deliberately cut because it is a teaser for a Magazine, in which the whole interview will appear in whole.

Read again what u wrote - there is no dalai lama there

who talks about the dalai lama? the text doesn't, you doesn't, you simple speak about some old driver who says yes to every question - i quote:

and so on...
