  • Washington in a Flash: Dalai Lama Visits Nation's Capital

    Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama arrived in the nation’s capital for a 10-day Buddhist ritual known as the Kalachakra for World Peace. His visit is the first since retiring as the political leader of Tibet’s government. But that’s still likely to upset China, according to Voice of America. There’s no word yet if President Obama will invite him to the White House.
