Ilyumzhinov introduced Kirkorov to the Dalai Lama and how it affected the singer's life

Today, the singer tries to avoid all games with devilry. Once his friend Kirsan Ilyumzhinov brought him to the Dalai Lama, who revealed the truth, saying that Kirkorov aura was too bright and pure. And if other actors are allowed to play the devil, Woland or other evil spirits, then Philip is better off refraining from this. It is worth noting that after his brilliant role as a devil in the Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka musical, many troubles and problems happened in the singer's life. And when he, disobeying the advice of the Dalai Lama, played Dracula misfortune happened again – he had a nervous breakdown and ended up in the hospital.

Philip Kirkorov said: “I have been waiting for a meeting with the Dalai Lama for a very long time, and for a long time I have been friends with (first President of Kalmykia) Kirsan Ilyumzhinov. And somehow, 20 years ago, I let slip that I have a dream, even though I am of a different religion, to meet this philosopher - I still consider him more of a philosopher - the Dalai Lama.
We talked, 15 years have passed, and one day Kirsan called me and said: "I will soon have a meeting with the Dalai Lama, would you like to fly with me?" Despite some very important business in Moscow, almost at the governmental level, I took a vacation and flew with Kirsan to this meeting, to spend three days there as a special guest of the Dalai Lama. His teaching and philosophy are unforgettable. The most important thing is that I felt the light that came from him and incredible kindness and calmness, which immediately passed on to me. At that time, I had a rather nervous period in my life when it seemed that everything was ruined.

But after this meeting, everything returned to normal and stabilized. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence, an accident, or because of a meeting with the Dalai Lama, but after that everything fell into place in my life somehow. Probably, I was lucky to be the one of the few to spend three whole days in the company of the Dalai Lama. And I am grateful to Kirsan Ilyumzhinov for this meeting,” said Philip Kirkorov.
