GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, December 31, 2000: Well respected Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, spoke candidly about the issue of conversion. He is reported as telling the Swiss weekly "Dimanche," "Above all, let us not try to convert one another." This was in response to the flourishing of Buddhism in Europe and proselytizing by Christians in Asia. The Dalai Lama also elaborates by expressing that conversion should take place only after deep inner reflection and philosophical study so that the new convert is dedicated to his adopted faith.
