In the past few days, the Dalai Lama’s viral “suck my tongue” video went viral all over the world and left a lot of people shocked.

Although he has since apologised via an official statement which was shared on his Twitter page and said that he was simply being playful, it appears that some Tibetan officials are defending the Dalai Lama’s actions.

In a report by CNN, it was said that a top Tibetan leader has said that the Dalai Lama asking a child to suck his tongue was “innocent” and that the actions of the Buddhist high priest were misinterpreted.

It was stated that, Penpa Tsering, the head of the Tibetan government-in-exile, defended the spiritual leader during an event in the Indian capital of New Delhi.

“His holiness has always lived in sanctity, (following the life of) a Buddhist monk, including celibacy. His years of spiritual practice have gone beyond sensorial pleasures.”

“His holiness is now being labeled all kinds of names,” Tsering said of the Dalai Lama.

Meanwhile, Tsering added that the widespread global outrage sparked by the video had “hurt” the followers of the Dalai Lama, the exiled leader of Tibetan spiritual Buddhists.

Without providing any evidence, Tsering suggested that “pro-Chinese sources” were behind the video going viral on social media, according to CNN.

“The political angle of this incident cannot be ignored,” said Tsering.
