    • The story of a group of Jewish spiritual leaders and intellectuals go to meet with the Dalai Lama in Dharmasala. Apparently Tibetans and Jews have a lot in common! Both have experience with exile, both are faced with the task of adapting an ancient creed to modern times. And both have a tradition of spiritual debate – that was new to me. There is The Institute of Buddhist Dialaectics that the Dalai Lama founded so there would always be good arguments happening.
