Watch John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ Interview with the Dalai Lama

Here’s a clip from last night’s Last Week Tonight, where John Oliver heads to India to sit down with the Dalai Lama to chat about uplifting topics like Tibetan persecution by the Chinese government, the over 100 Tibetans who have self-immolated in protest of Chinese oppression, and the controversy surrounding what will happen after the Dalai Lama dies, including the possibility that he will not be reincarnated. Despite the grave concerns, the Dalai Lama has a better sense of humor than most of the people Oliver has interviewed, not to mention enduring positivity: “I have no negative feelings. I just feel love,” he says. “I practice taking others’ anger, suspicion, distrust, and giving them patience, tolerance, and compassion.” Watch the full interview above.
