Two days after I posted our modest proposal that Gordon Brown meet the Dalai Lama, Buddhist eco-capitalist Steve Varon and his very lovely partner, Beth, happened to drop by the Prospect potala on a brief visit to London from New York. He’s a remarkable man with a vision (in fact, he literally had a vision) that the Dalai Lama should be invited to carry the Olympic torch on a part of its journey to Beijing. I think it’s a great wheeze (so will the Dalai Lama if he has to carry the flame up Mount Everest). Steve has produced a video, which is well worth watching. You don’t have to be a Buddhist to see the deeper logic of Steve’s suggestion. Pass it on (like the torch).
