A Christian UW student asks a Tibetan Buddhist monk questions. Enlightenment does not ensue.

Student:
Do you speak English?
Monk:
Yes. Not good, but I try.
Student:
Where are you from?
Monk:
Tibet. But we are exiles and are in India now. Too dangerous for Buddhist to stay.
Student:
Buddhists? Like Buddha? Do you all believe in Jesus then?
Monk:
I believe in everyone.
Student:
No, but do you believe-believe in Jesus?
Monk:
*smiles* I believe-believe in everyone. Even you.
Student:
Huh?
