On Wednesday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed His Holiness The Dalai Lama for an hourlong exclusive interview, touching upon such topics as religion, politics, and temptation.
Joining Piers Morgan in Rochester, Minn. following his annual physical at the Mayo Clinic, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader detailed his feelings on the relationship between Tibet, and an ever-powerful China:
"Number of Chinese also now showing their genuine, sort of this sense of solidarity with us," explained The Dalai Lama. "And the world, every - many parts of the world, at least who know something about Tibet, they watch its current situation, I think very, very sort of sympathetic, sort of - they have very much concern."
A Nobel Peace Prize winner, His Holiness was also in the the U.S. for the 12th World Summit of Nobel Laureates, and as the wide-ranging sit down continued, Morgan broached the issue of celibacy, asking his guest:
"Do you ever feel temptation when you see a woman?"
Answering in the affirmative, The Dalai Lama offered further explanation:
"Even my dream, this is some sort of - dreaming, some women like that."
However, even while asleep, The Dalai Lama curbs his temptation, never losing sight of who he is:
"Image of the eye - I am monk. I never dreamt, in my dream, I'm Dalai Lama. I always remember, I am monk, always monk."
Watch the clips, and listen to the conversation, for more remarkable and fascinating insight from a man Morgan calls "the most famous person I've ever interviewed."
