American songstress Lady Gaga met with Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama for a talk about compassion and meditation at the US Conference of Mayors gathering in Indianapolis.

Their 20-minute chat on June 26 was shared on Facebook Live, reported USA Today.

The Dalai Lama answered questions that Gaga chose from social media about how to deal with the injustice in the world.

'We are a social animal, so individuals' future depends entirely on the community,' he said.

He offered more advice: 'Once (a) tragic situation happens, not avoid -- (but) look at more deeply, widely. Many positive, happy things are there if you look (from a) wider perspective. If you look real closely, it appears unbearable. But if you look widely (you see) other positive things are there.'

As for meditating, Gaga does it, and so does His Holiness.

However, 'I am a poor practitioner of meditation. 81 years old... progress, not much,' he said, smiling.

But his analytic meditation methods seem to work. 'You can judge my (young-looking) face,' he said. 'Nothing special medicine... My mind (is) always clear.'

The Dalai Lama also said, 'I'm one 81-year-old person with quite a lot of experiences. My experiences much bigger than your experiences.'

'You didn't know this, but I'm much older than you,' joked Gaga, and they both laughed.

I'm The Man hitmaker is not the only rapper who got apprehended with the law because of cursing.
