Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, calls the current
global economic crisis a lesson for people to think about other values
than money.

The Dalai Lama is on a three-day visit to Poland, where he spoke to an
audience of students at Warsaw University Tuesday.

He called the world's economic problems an "unfortunate crisis" and said
people need truth and honesty in money matters.

He admitted that all he knows about financial matters is that people
cannot survive without money.

This is the Dalai Lama's fourth visit to Poland. It comes at the
invitation of Warsaw's mayor and the city council.

He will also visit a museum dedicated to the World War II Warsaw
Uprising - a doomed 1944 insurrection by the Polish resistance against
occupying Nazi forces.
