Spiritual leader Dalai Lama believes that if his successor is going to be a female, she better be good looking.
In an interview with a news channel, when asked if his successor could be a woman, the 80-year-old spiritual leader said that a female has more potential to show affection, adding that her face must be “very very attractive.”
“I think female[s] should take more important role and then – I told the reporter – if a female does come her face should be very, very attractive.”
The interviewer even asked him if he was joking. But Lama said that it was true.
The Tibetan spiritual leader, who is in his 80s, made the remarks while on a nine-day visit to London, where he is promoting the concepts of compassionate and considerate behavior
Dalai Lama’s latest remarks stand in stark contrast to comments in 2009 in Tennessee.
“I call myself a feminist,” he told an audience while accepting an International Freedom Award. “Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights?”
