Yes...we think of him as such...but traditionally he was thought of as being more than that...a guru of sorts. Lao Tze could also fall into either category...religious icon or philosopher....most traditional Chinese icons do. Even the Buddha was more philosopher than religious icon.

Gandhi was a Religious Icon? I don't see how..

And why The Dali Lama? when he is the sales rep for the Budda

I think I'll join Jim to ask Muhammed what the hell he was thinking when he wrote his verses.
Hell, I really want to know which drugs he took that made him believe angels were speaking to him..

Interesting actaully.. These days if someone proclaims s/he hears angels speak that person will be thrown in the loony bin :shock:

Got to admit a respect for the Dali Llama.

Never heard him shouting for the death of other 'non-believers'.

Used to work with an old fella and his daughter, they used to have regular contact with the Dali Lahma. They ran a charity to help him and his people, always said he was a top bloke.

I only have interest in speaking with the fictional ones. Additionally, if such a thing could happen it would mean I bet on the wrong horse and will now writhe in agony for all time. So I say let them stay fairy tales.
