WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Dalai Lama has opened the U.S. Senate session with prayer.

With nearly a dozen senators listening raptly, the Dalai Lama said that if you speak or act with a pure mind, happiness will follow.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid thanked the Dalai Lama for his prayers and words of encouragement.

The Dalai Lama is Tibet's Nobel Laureate. He gave up his political role as the leader of the Tibetan government-in-exile in 2011.
