His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Interview with Tenzin Gyatso, the Dalai Lama

The spiritual leader of Tibet on his life, the secret of happiness and what he thinks of Robin Hood county.

Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, has spent a week in Nottinghamshire.

His Holiness describes the city of Nottingham as 'very beautiful' and its people as having a 'very friendly attitude'.

We've been granted two rare face-to-face interviews with the Dalai Lama.

Guilty pleasures

Speaking to BBC Radio Nottingham's Sarah Julian, His Holiness talks about his early years and whether it's ever been a burden being the Dalai Lama.

He also reveals his guilty pleasures and tells us what he'd do if he could step out onto the streets of Nottingham for a day.

Secret of happiness

The Dalai Lama tells BBC East Midlands Today's Sumeer Kalyani what the people of Nottinghamshire should do each day to help them lead a happy life.

His Holiness is also asked how he would tackle violent crime in the UK, how Nottinghamians might become greener citizens and, after nearly 50 years of exile in India, what spurs the Dalai Lama on.

The 14th Dalai Lama's been in Nottingham for five days of public talks and teachings - on 'Bringing Meaning to Our Lives' and 'Investigating the Nature of Reality' - between Saturday 24 and Wednesday 28 May 2008.

He says if the invitation arrived he'd love to come back on holiday.
