my Sunday Night interview with the Dalai Lama

Posted on July 18th, 2011

I interviewed His Holiness for Sunday Night on Channel Seven. Here it is…

I mentioned on Twitter at the time…afterwards I was in the hotel lobby working on my laptop and he and his entourage bustled by. HH gave me a double thumbs up and a wink. Life highlight. The next day he blessed me and gave me one of his peace scarves. I’m a very lucky little chicken…
Aptly I’m finishing the last day of a meditation retreat…so I better go before I get sprung (I’ve already been sprung on Words With Friends by someone!)…

    Sarah, you are very natural at interviewing. Good questions and lovely to watch.


  • Jem

    What made you take your laptop/mobile to a meditation retreat? Doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose?

    The video link is not showing for me. Is that because I’m in the United Snakes or is the thingo broke?

    couldn’t access video clip??? i live in the US, is that the problem?


  • Well done Sarah. What great questions you asked. You could tell they were well thought out and made the most of the opportunity to interview an incredible man.

    And you could also tell in your eyes and face how much you think of the Dalai Lama. And I’m sure he could see and sense the same thing … all making for an enjoyable, funny, yet deep and insightful interview.

    Well done again – I continue to love what you write and stand for ! You’re gold !

    Hey Sarah,

    Just had to tell you this! This morning I am trying to decide whether to go ahead with a TM meditation course and just couldn’t make up my mind so I asked the Universe for guidance.

    Your Friday Newsletter arrives where you advise you are actually at a TM meditation retreat while writing it 🙂 Thanks, I now know the answer!

    You lucky, lucky duck interviewing the Dalai Lama! And getting a thumbs up and a wink from him at the hotel, a Life Highlight alright 🙂

    Thanks Sarah, love your work.


  • Hey Sarah,

    I’m not sure where I’ve been hiding… perhaps under a rock (or more likely, inside a whirlwind of a mind) but this is the first time I’ve swung by your blog. I’m totally inspired!

    I’ve been on a bit of a journey of late – which I blog about (camera in hand… or face) and have recently discovered the value in ‘service’. I now realise that happiness comes from selfless acts of kindness and love.

    Love this interview! You both shine! xx
