Platinum-selling musician Moby was granted an audience with the Dalai Lama Thursday in Philadelphia.
Writing on his Web site, Moby said he was joined by friends Serj Tankian from System of a Down, KT Tunstall and Joss Stone. The artists came together for The Missing Peace Music Project, the Dalai Lama's peace through music campaign.
"Mainly I was struck by his intellect," he wrote of the informal meeting, which included a performance by Tunstall, and was filmed for the documentary Journey of a Thousand Miles: In Search of the Missing Peace. "He might be the brightest person I've ever met. Second, I was struck by his sense of humor."
During the meeting, the Dalai Lama displayed that sense of humor when he laughed at one of Moby's jokes.
