Dalai Lama and the Pope

Those who preach in whatever name should do it in the front of everybody, in the first line.

I’ve never seen the Pope ever leaving his Vatican comfortable chair in order to go and put himself between the Arabs and the Israelis fighting in Gaza, or Kosovo, or Irak, or Afghanistan, or East Timur, or ….

I’ve never seen the Dalai Lama teaching his meaningful love and peace philosophy in the favelas from Brazil, or Guatemala, or Indonesia, or Lesotho, or anywhere in Africa… (but I’ve seen him giving lectures and conferences in Barcelona or New York with 18 euros entry fee).

What is the point of being known and famous if you loose your courage to go out and use your power in first battle line?
