Commentary: Quote - (at spot: 14:42)

DALAI LAMA:
“What is this tradition?”

INTERPRETER for Dalai Lama’s words:
”So the flower arrangements that we see here seem to be inspired by the Tibetan ritual objects, torma.

DALAI LAMA:
”Actually torma – if you feel hungry you can eat, but these things you cannot eat, except I think drink, the coconut."

Dear Susana,
The flower arrangements were gorgeous and extremely creative. No doubt you heard HHDL's comment about them. Immediately, I knew you had modeled them on the Tibetan torma (offering cakes). He got it too, and was very amused and pleased. Thanks so much for such a wonderful and creative welcome for HHDL.
