Dalai Lama has accomplished many feats throughout his existance and has climbed all to the way to the top as a religious and spiritual icon. Perhaps his biggest feat, however came on Friday when he revealed that he had never heard of Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods and Dalai Lama have little in common – but the golfing superstar announcing that he would use Buddhism to help control his illness has brought Dalai Lama, Tiger Woods together in some strange way.

In his much anticipated and discussed press conference, Tiger Woods made the statement that he plans on doing whatever necessary to control himself of bad impulses.

“I have a lot of work to do and intend to dedicate myself to doing it. Part of this is Buddhism. Buddhism teaches me to stop following every impulse and to know restraint. Obviously I lost track of what I was taught.”

Being asked on the matter in Los Angeles the exiled Monk from Tibet said he didn’t know who the famous golf star was. Dalai Lama’s Tiger Woods ignorance is quite impressive considering that every single news publication has been beating the story to death for the last several weeks.

Dalai Lama did admit that his lack of sports knowledge was his “disgrace” as he put it.

Dalai Lama did say regarding Tiger Woods adultery that self-discipline is among the Buddhisim’s most important values. Whether or not the newfound Buddhist Tiger Woods will live up to his religion’s leader is something to watch out for in the coming months and years as Tiger Woods tries to bounce back from the huge emberassment that his latest scandal has brought both to himself, his legacy, but most importantly, his family.
