10 Questions For The Dalai Lama was the title for a documentary film released in 2006.

Filmmaker Rick Ray asks Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, ten questions during the course of the interview. The questions are mixed with a biography of the 14th Dalai Lama, and also a history of modern Tibet.

Among the questions posed were:

• "Why do the poor seem happier than the rich?"

• "How can one reconcile an attitude of non-violence when faced with a direct threat to one's safety and security?"

• "Should countries be dedicated to preserving their traditions or embrace modern culture?"

• "Will there be another Dalai Lama?"

If you could ask the 14th Dalai Lama one question, what would it be? Post your questions under COMMENTS below.
