An article at Belief.net describing the Dalai Lama’s press conference at the start of his recent visit to New York reports that the Tibetan spiritual leader is still interested in joining the Green Party:

He was quite energized about ecology; he said humanity seemed to be growing up. And he noted, “Oh, you don’t have a Green Party here [actually, the USA does], but if you did, maybe I would join the Green Party!”

The Dalai Lama previously expressed support for Greens at a University of Michigan lecture in 2008, when he said “If you have a Green Party, I want to join.” Video:

    WASHINGTON, DC — Green Party leaders responded today to the Dalai
    Lama’s statement on Thursday that the US has no Green Party, but he
    would join if one were started.

    “We’d be thrilled to welcome the Dalai Lama as an honorary member of
    the Green Party,” said Farheen Hakeem, co-chair of the Green Party of
    the United States.

    Speaking in Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Thursday, May
    20, the Dalai Lama said, “America still, no Green Party. But,
    actually you should start one. Then, I may join.”

    “We’re honored that the Dalai Lama said he’d be willing to join us.
    In the context of his speech at Radio City, he clearly recognized that
    the Green Party is the party of nonviolence, ecology, human rights and
    freedoms, and basic values of social justice and economic fairness.
    These values include democracy and self-determination for people
    around the world, including Tibetans,” said Mike Feinstein, co-chair
    of the Green Party of the United States.

    “The Dalai Lama apparently doesn’t know that we have a growing Green
    Party here in the United States. And perhaps for some good reasons,
    such as the media’s tendency to limit political coverage to the narrow
    choice between Democrat and Republican. Or because of the prohibitive
    and antidemocratic ballot access rules enacted in many states to
    hinder third parties and third party candidates,” Mr. Feinstein added.

    The Dalai Lama delivered his speech in New York, where Green candidate
    Howie Hawkins was nominated for Governor by the Green Party of New
    York State on May 15, along with a slate of other candidates for
    statewide office (http://www.gp.org/press/pr-national.php?ID=316


    “The Dalai Lama is a shining example of nonviolence, compassion, and
    recognition of the need of humanity to evolve and change towards a new
    direction as we all potentially face the abyss. He, as representative
    of his people, forgives attack and truly turns the other cheek. He
    has encouraged cooperation and collaboration on many fronts, including
    between the medicines of the East and West. He is the type of person
    we need more of right now,” said Cecile Lawrence, New York Green
    nominee for the US Senate. Dr. Lawrence witnessed the Dalai Lama
    speak at Constitutional Hall in Washington, DC, at an international
    conference on Tibetan medicine.

    The Dalai Lama’s comments were made in a month of Green Party
    advancements around the world


    In the UK, Caroline Lucas became the first Green Party member ever
    elected to Parliament, representing Brighton Pavilion. And in
    Colombia, Green presidential candidate Antanas Mockus holds a strong
    lead in polls and may become the first Green Party head of a national
    government. The Colombian election will take place on May 30.

    The Green Party of the United States will hold its 2010 Annual
    National Meeting in Detroit, Michigan, from June 24 to June 27. The
    meeting will highlight Green candidates running for public office in
    2010, including 48 candidates for Congress and 11 for Governor of
    their respective states.
