Mayor Pro Tem Myron Lowery has taken quite a razzing for his fist bump of the Dalai Lama. And he probably deserves some of it. But nobody seems to have noticed that the Dalai Lama, after discussing the need to replace fear and violent activity with affection, ended his address by giving Mayor Lowery a fist bump of his own.

"Hello Dalai" may not be the most dignified way to greet a great spiritual leader but the fist bump turned out to be a real winner. Here's the complete unedited video.
