After a video surfaced showing the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama kissing a little child on the lips and then inviting him to ‘suck his tongue,’ the Dalai Lama found himself at the center of a scandal. Netizens have reacted angrily to the video, which has gone viral on social media platforms.

The Dalai Lama is seen kissing the toddler on the lips as the child leans in to pay his respects. The Tibetan spiritual guru may be seen pointing to his mouth and putting his tongue out after a few seconds. In the footage, the Dalai Lama can be heard asking the small kid, “Can you suck my tongue?”

A video apparently showing the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual leader, kissing a boy on the lips and then inviting the child to “suck his tongue” has sparked outrage. During an exchange in which the child was paying his respects, the Buddhist monk extended his tongue and asked the boy to suck on it.


The video sparked outrage, with netizens labelling the spiritual leader’s actions “disgusting” and “creepy.”

“I was really taken aback by the Dalai Lama’s performance. He’s had to apologise before for his sexist remarks. But telling a tiny boy, ‘Now suck my tongue,’ is nasty,” a netizen tweeted.


“The Dalai Lama’s behaviour in full public view is absolutely repugnant.” Sexual misbehaviour and molestation are involved. No youngster should be put in this predicament. I hope the authorities take notice. Another social media user stated, “A case needs to be booked under POCSO.”


Back in 2019, the Dalai Lama sparked a major uproar when he stated that if his successor were a woman, she would need to be “attractive.” “If a female Dalai Lama comes, she should be more attractive,” he said in an interview with a British broadcaster that aired from his exile in Dharamsala, drawing widespread outrage. However, he later apologised for his divisive statements.
