In a sickening display of inappropriate behavior, the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, has been forced to apologize after a repulsive incident where he kissed a young boy on the lips and asked him to “suck his tongue” during a public event in India. The nauseating interaction occurred in late February at the Dalai Lama’s temple in Dharamshala, which was attended by around 100 innocent young students.
This episode involving the Dalai Lama, supposedly the holiest figure in Tibetan Buddhism, took place in front of the crowd of recently graduated students from the Indian M3M Foundation. The shameless incident was captured in a video that has now gone viral.

In the disturbing footage, a young male student can be seen approaching the microphone and asking the Dalai Lama, aged 87, if he could hug him. The Dalai Lama then instructed the boy to approach the platform and motioned to his cheek, prompting the child to kiss and hug him. The Dalai Lama continued to hold the boy, kissed him on the lips, and even told him to “suck my tongue.” The boy quickly retreated while the Dalai Lama laughed and pulled the boy in for another hug, as the audience shockingly chuckled. Full video at the end.
If you've seen people talking about the Dali Llama today, the conversation goes like this:
Person A: Look! The Dali Llama is a pedo!
Person B: Okay, what's your evidence for that statement?
A: *points to video*
B: The video could easily have been faked. How do we know it's

Following this unsettling scene, the so-called spiritual leader offered the boy some advice before finally releasing him from his embrace. As the video circulated online, it was met with widespread condemnation, with many labeling the behavior as “inappropriate,” “scandalous,” and downright “disgusting.”
The ensuing outrage forced an apology from the office of the Dalai Lama, who tried to downplay the incident as “innocent and playful.” The statement also included an apology to the boy, his family, and the Dalai Lama’s followers worldwide for any hurt his vile actions may have caused.
Show me 1 instance that the Dali Llama has received a tongue suck as a hug, you know, culturally.
This is a blatant and outward showing of child sexual grooming. It’s not as if the DL just started his tenure as a cultural religious leader. Shame on you for not defending the boy.

This isn’t the first time the Dalai Lama has been embroiled in controversy. In 2019, he sparked outrage by suggesting that if the Dalai Lama were to return as a woman, “she should be more attractive.” Once again, his office had to issue an apology.
A video of the Dalai Lama is circulating of him sexually assaulting a young boy. In the video, he demands the child to “suck my tongue”. Sadly, this comes as no surprise to me.
– The Dalai Lama endorsed the NXIVM sex trafficking cult.
