Here are a few poignant passages from the interview.

Dalai Lama: (bursting with laughter) "No! (laughing again and taking off his glasses) "Today my eyes with little irritation. If I were a god, that would not happen." (continuing to laugh)
The Dalai Lama describes Heaven: "Very happy, very pleasant. Is best place for further development ..."
