It would be nice if Shoko Asahara, instead of being HANGED to dead, that the Japanese government get a bit more creative and say, make a slow and painful death for Asahara, with SARIN,etc...may he BURN IN HELL!!

I was totally disgusted several years ago when I saw a photo of the Dalai Lama cosying up to Asahara? Asahara is a thoroughly wicked and evil thing to lead the evil cult?

Asian2014, the Dalai Lama met Shoko Asahara well before the sarin gas attacks. He meets tens if not hundreds of thousands of people who attend his talks every year, and happened to have his picture taken with Shoko Asahara, who had attended one of his talks. At that time the cult was seen as kooky for sure, but no-one knew what they were planning, and it is unlikely the Dalai Lama even knew who Asahara was among the thousands of people wanting to have their photos taken with him.

The Dalai Lama may be a spiritual leader, but that doesn't make him a mindreader- you didn't think that photo was taken after the gas attacks, did you?
