Dalai Lama In Gucci ?

News have been circling in the internet for quite a while that Dalai Lama wears luxury goods while he travels around the world. This was started by Australian tycoon Rupert Murdoch in which during an interview with a magazine, he called Dalai Lama as " a political monk shuffling around in Gucci shoes ". I am apolitical in issue pertaining to Dalai Lama, i don't support him, neither nor i dislike him. My intention of posting this is not to discredit the Dalai Lama but just to share with you all what some people have been saying about him. Below are a few photos of Dalai Lama, you decide if these photos are real or fake. This photo showing the Dalai Lama wearing Gucci shoes This one showing Dalai Lama wearing the luxurious Patek Philippe watch

This photo was taken during his trip to America a few years ago to meet President Obama, he was seen wearing only a pair of very basic sandals.

Hi. I don't have gmail mail.
My mind.The follower or disciple gives them to Dalai Lama.He could auction it if it's too many but if it's some, he could wear them, also if somebody is traveling around, he has to wear durable thing.
