6. Dalai Lama: It's OK to want money

Jerusalem Post
Feb. 19, 2006

In a televised press conference on Sunday, the Dalai Lama, currently
visiting Israel, answered questions from reporters.
One reporter asked, "Is it possible to live without money?"

In response, His Holiness said, "We love money - it's impossible to change
that. Part of Buddhist practice is generosity, donation. And without money,
only prayer!" The audience laughed.

"But there are some people who feel money is the only purpose of our life.
And that is bad."
