Russell Brand Proves Unlikely Success As Compere For Dalai Lama
Later on, Brand commented that the Lama was "intense and sort of mellow, which is what you expect of someone who meditates five times a day" and also joked about the unlikely pairing they made, quipping "Going from junkie to Shagger of the Year...three times... to now introducing the Dalai Lama. It has been an interesting journey." Enjoying the introduction, his interviewee commented "I think your openness transfers wonderfully."
The talk itself focused on dialogue being the key to resolving conflict, with the now India-based monk commenting "At the age of 16 I lost my freedom. At the age of 24 I lost my own country. During these 50 or 60 years I have faced a lot of problems but I never give up hope. Hope based on truth, hope based on reason."
