Dalai Lama

            A Franciscan priest by the title of Murray Bodo, O., writes a calming article on his observations of a religious retreat the Dalai Lama attended. Monks and holy people from numerous religions joined the Dalai Lama at this interreligious monastic gathering and dialogue. However, the Dalai Lama had an additional motive to attend the retreat. The Dalai Lama visited the spirit of a Cistercian monk and friend by the name of Thomas Merton before and while participating in the retreat. Offering peace of mind and spiritual guidance to all he associated with, the Dalai Lama made a crucial contribution to the retreat. .
             Murray Bodo presents the Dalai Lama with respect and reverence that many can only yearn for. While emphasizing the importance of bringing together the people of all religions, he puts a damper on the equality of all religions. Bodo puts the Dalai Lama in a light that makes the other attendees seem almost unimportant or inferior. Many situations may be taken as a monologue by the Dalai Lama instead of a dialogue between all the respected religious people who attended. The article is well written and colorfully describes the positive disposition of the Dalai Lama but discards the responses of those with whom he interacts which would present a wider view of the Dalai Lama.
             An admirer of His Holiness, Murray Bodo delivers a flattering prospect on the Dalai Lama. Bodo describes a man of experience and wisdom, a friend and a humble being. The article describes the Dalai Lama's support of other religions as well as his aim for peace in every aspect. The Dalai Lama apparently drew much of the focus of the retreat and all of the focus of Bodo. Bodo draws the reader into by describing the unique kindness of the Dalai Lama and gives one no choice but to share his admiration for His Holiness. .
