The Dalai Lama has sparked yet another controversy after a video of him surfaced online, showing him allegedly asking a minor boy to suck his tongue and kissing him on the lips. The video has caused a strong reaction on social media, with many expressing outrage at the religious figure’s actions.
The fact that the Dalai Lama – one of the most prominent spiritual leaders in the world – isn't trending right now for asking a young boy to "suck his tongue" just proves that we've entered a new era of utter depravity.

The incident is not the first time the Dalai Lama has found himself in the middle of controversy. Earlier this year, he named an 8-year-old Mongolian boy as the ’10th Khalkha Jetsun Dhampa Rinpoche’, the third highest rank in Tibetan Buddhism. However, the child was later taken into custody by the Chinese government, sparking criticism from the Tibetan government in exile.
The Dalai Lama had also previously made sexist comments in an interview, stating that his successor could be a woman but she should be attractive. His comments were met with strong backlash from feminist groups, and he later apologized.

Despite his previous controversies, the Dalai Lama remains a highly revered religious figure, with a strong following around the world. However, this latest incident is likely to cause further scrutiny of his actions and statements, and may lead to calls for him to address the concerns of those who have been offended by his behavior.
