Macca receives spiritual book from Dalai Lama ahead of Israel gig

Sir Paul McCartney has received a special gift from the Dalai Lama to
help him through his controversial Israel gig- a spiritual book.

The Tibetan spiritual leader has sent a copy of 'The Universe In A
Single Atom' to the ex-Beatle to help him relate Buddhist philosophy
to modern times.

The veteran musician is scheduled to play a concert in Israel's
capital Tel Aviv on Sep 25, despite suicide bombers threatening to
target the event.

"I think we're at a very interesting stage in human development and I
just hope for the best and I'm optimistic about it. I'm not so much
religious as someone who likes to think I take the best from many
religions: the best of what they all have to say. They obviously have
a lot of things in common," Contactmusic quoted McCartney, as saying.

He added: "I always think of myself as spiritual rather than
religious. But I do feel that the world is a magnificent place and
that we are blessed to be on it."
