When I was younger, I went to a talk given by the Dalai Lama. I could tell by the way he looked at me glowing in the third row that he could see the purity in my aura, and that’s why he smiled and bowed like that. His title, Dalai Lama, may or may not be explained in Wikipedia. I couldn’t quite extract the meaning despite . Some think he’s Indian, apparently. This is kind of like a Lehman’s term, but for a place. Like a Bonn fire. I don’t think we have a name for that specific subspecies yet.
