An ugly video showing the Dalai Lama telling a young Indian boy to “suck his tongue” has been making the rounds online.
This Is Disgusting!
The event in issue occurred in Dharamshala at the start of February, but the clip has only just gained traction on the internet.
The tape was verified as authentic by the Dalai Lama in a public statement. After many individuals on the internet speculated that his actions were a profound fake, he eventually issued an apology.
The Tibetan spiritual guru apologized for his actions in a public address. Then he said he wanted to apologize to the kid and his family and to all of his friends across the world for whatever pain his words may have caused.
The Dalai Lama’s office highlighted in the statement that His Holiness often casually and humorously teases the people he meets, even while in public and in front of cameras.
According to the AP, the Tibetan spiritual leader apologized on Monday after receiving criticism over an internet video showing him giving a child a kiss on the lips.
They went on to say that in a message posted on his website, the 87-year-old leader apologized for what had happened.

They said it occurred in February during a big gathering at the Dharamsala temple of the exiled leader, the Tsuglakhang temple. He was responding to the audience’s questions and observations when the kid approached him for a hug.
When the Dalai Lama first came out as a Marxist in 2011, he caused quite a stir.
Dalai Lama Apologizes
According to Buddhist teaching, an apology is incomplete until the recipient receives it graciously and forgives the offender.
Since the apology was made, no one has heard from the youngster or his family.
