Dharamshala -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama called
for more women to fill senior positions during an
interview with the Sunday edition of German daily
Bild, DPA news agency reported Monday.

"Women have more compassion and can recognise the
pain of other people more quickly and better than
men," His Holiness the Dalai Lama said.

"For this reason, women should be involved far
more often in important decisions and should hold
important posts. As chancellor for example," His
Holiness said, adding, 'In Germany that is exemplary.'

His Holiness the Dalai Lama showed little
sympathy for an obsession with outward appearances.

"Whoever is at one with themselves, doesn't need
to undergo operations to their external
features," His Holiness said, adding, "Whoever is
beautiful on the inside, exudes that and will
automatically be beautiful for others."
