WATCH: Dalai Lama Says ‘O.K.’ to Same-Sex Marriages

The exiled spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists called gay marriage an "individual business"

The Dalai Lama took his first public stance on gay marriage Thursday, calling it “O.K.” during an online interview with Larry King.

“If two people — a couple — really feel that way is more practical, more sort of satisfaction, both sides fully agree, then O.K.,” he said, adding that he unreservedly opposed attacks on homosexuals. “Bully, abuse — that’s totally wrong.”
