SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
spent his second day of a weekend swing throught
the Bay Area at a soup kitchen, dishing out food
and jokes for the homeless guests.

The Dalai Lama, head of Tibet's government in
exile and 1 of the most significant spiritual
leaders in the world told the homeless in
attendance, that he was homeless like them.

His visit was arranged by The Forgotten
International, a nonprofit that promotes helping the world's poorest people.

throughout his hour-long visit to Martin's -
formally, Martin de Porres House of Hospitality -
which is rooted in the Catholic Worker movement.
