Indian: Are you the Lord Buddha?
Dalai Lama: I believe I am a reflection, like the moon on water. When you see me, and I try to be a good man, you see yourself.
Dalai Lama: Just like a dream experience, whatever things I enjoy will become a memory. Whatever is past will not be seen again.
Dalai Lama: Thus by the virtue that has collected through all that I have done may the pain of every living creature be completely cleared away.
[hearing the Chinese propaganda loudspeakers blaring outside]
Dalai Lama: They have taken away our silence.
