The Dalai Lama spoke Friday of his sadness at losing his friend Nelson Mandela, whom he hailed as an affectionate and principled man.
"We are very much sad," the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader said in a live webcast broadcast organised by the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg.
"However, this sadness is not much use. This sadness must translate into willpower, determination," to emulate Mandela's example of peace, said the Dalai Lama who lives in exile in northern India.
