Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama,  participates in a conversation with Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights at The Tibet Fund Town Hall in New York, May 3, 2009. The Dalai Lama, a Buddhist monk who is seen as a figure of moral authority in much of the world, was on a three-day visit to New York. US President Barack Obama's top Asia advisor recently said China should see the Dalai Lama as "part of the solution" on Tibet instead of trying to isolate him.  Allison Joyce for the New York Post
