Unique Insight from a Unique Perspective
A modern personal view of the most prominent spiritual figure of the modern world other than the Pope. Unlike other religions Buddhism does not offer any opinion or view of God, rather it focuses on a more productive approach to living via an alternative to the ubiquitous material and religious perspectives that permeate modern society. It is ironic that China's leaders view the eminently peaceful path of Buddhism as a threat. Unlike some other religions, Buddhism is the epitome of a non-violent world-view. Their 'threat' to China is purely a spiritual one. It is very telling that China puts so much energy into suppressing and oppressing the peaceful Buddhists monks in Tibet.
The Dalai Lama's spiritual journey as a pre-destined leader of the most peaceful world-wide faith is unlike any other.
To bad for Apple
It is a shame for the company that their supporters are so ignorant. What kind person would write cuss words in what is meant to be a review and have nothing intelligent to write. I will tell you, a person with no dignity!
How miserable it must be to be in the skin of one filled with so much hate (previous reviewer).
