Personal Quote:

When I am there [Tibet], I am very happy. The Tibetans radiate. They literally send out light. His Holiness [the The Dalai Lama] generates love and compassion to every human being. He has committed himself to that. I haven't made that leap yet. I haven't given up self-aspiration. I still love making movies. See more »
