- A Special Present For His Holiness
Munk later presented His Holiness with a picture of a newly discovered aquatic species, which was named “Sirsoe dalailamai” after His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. Munk told the audience that the animal was named after His Holiness because during its lifetime, it gives back to the Earth more than it takes! Sounds a lot like His Holiness, doesn’t it?
