ABSTRACT
This article presents a conversation with the Dalai Lama, the fourteenth in the line of reincarnated monk-monarchs. The Dalai Lama has been in exile in India since his flight in 1959 from the Chinese People's Liberation Army. His arrival in New York on Labor Day in 1979 coincided with reports of secret negotiations between Tibetan exiles and Peking officials. The Dalai Lama called the Chinese "our teachers" and proposed compassion toward the enemy. He also discusses his chances of returning home. When asked about an ancient prophecy that he may be the last Dalai Lama, he said that it is quite impossible.
