DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- The Dalai Lama says the
economic crisis cannot deter the U.S. from
championing liberty, freedom and democracy.

Fresh off a visit to the White House, the Tibetan
spiritual leader addressed about 4,000 people
Tuesday at Nova Southeastern University outside Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Exiled for the last half-century, the Dalai Lama
also spoke of the value of forgiveness, urging
the audience to hate actions, not people. He says
he maintains compassion for the Chinese even
though he disagrees with their treatment of his people.

The Buddhist leader will address more South
Florida crowds later Tuesday and on Wednesday.
