In 2001, the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, noted that if someone had a gun and was trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

The statement stunned the world, as the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner and leader of Tibetan Buddhism, like the 13 Dalai Lama’s before him, is know for his compassion and peacefulness.

The outside world has grown to assume that Tibetan Buddhists are pacifists, but that is a statement without basis in fact.

That said, all of the statements we’ve seen curated (beyond the first one) attributed to Tenzin Gyatso over the past week are… to be taken with a considerable degree of skepticism.













Thanks to Trevor Fiatal for curating these memes on his Facebook album, Wisdom from Dalai Lama.
