The Dalai Lama won the prize 20 years ago:
I think if you are realistic, it may have been a little early but it doesn't matter, I know Obama is a very able person.
The Dalai Lama also expressed optimism about the President's approach to global warming, a possible ban on nuclear weapons, and his lack of depression.
If you are depressed and lost hope then, I think, at the end of our life we may develop regret.
He hopes to meet with the President in the next few months.
