DHARAMSALA, India – Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, told his followers Tuesday that the Tibetan culture, religion and identity face “extinction” and that residents of Tibet were living in “hell on earth.” The Nobel Peace Prize-winning pacifist made the unusually pointed comments in a speech on the 50th anniversary of a failed Tibetan uprising.

Regardless of religious affiliation or spiritual background, many in this country and throughout the world also view him as the embodiment of kindness and love.
