Kundun: Just like a dream experience, whatever things I enjoy will become a memory. Whatever is past will not be seen again.

Kundun: Thus by the virtue that has collected through all that I have done may the pain of every living creature be completely cleared away.
Dalai Lama: I see a safe journey, I see a safe return
[Hearing the Chinese propaganda loudspeakers blaring outside.] Dalai Lama: They have taken away our silence.
