Laurence Freeman - World Community for Christian Meditation

"The Dalai Lama has been an inspiration to me"

Laurence Freeman: fist met the Dalai Lama in Montreal in 1980, when John Main invited him to visit the new community there after an interfaith service in the Cathedral. Fr. John had a very positive conversation with him and as he was leaving presented him with a copy of the Rule of St Benedict. In his book Towards the True Kinship of Faiths he describes this meeting and how moved he was by it.
