Simon To Meet Dalai Lama
Veteran singer PAUL SIMON is to meet exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the DALAI LAMA tomorrow (26JAN04) - adding his name to a long list of celebrities who have paid the legendary icon a visit.
The SIMON + GARFUNKEL star - who reunited with ART GARFUNKEL last year (04) to embark on a world tour - is planning to stay near the Indian northern hill station of Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama is based, for two days.
Dharamsala has been frequented by high-profile personalities including British royal SARAH FERGUSON, the Duchess of York; and actors PIERCE BROSNAN, RICHARD GERE, STEVEN SEAGAL and GOLDIE HAWN.
The Dalai Lama and his followers fled Tibet after a failed uprising against Chinese rule and set up base in Dharamsala in 1959.25/01/2004 21:05
