Followers of the Dalai Lama's nonviolent teachings lost their cool yesterday - tossing coins and water bottles at Midtown protesters.
After the Dalai Lama finished a two-hour speech on human suffering at Radio City Music Hall, his audience of several hundred people stepped onto Sixth Avenue to chants of "Dalai Lama, stop lying!" from the protesters - who claim the Tibetan spiritual leader persecutes Buddhist Shugden practitioners.
Supporters waved money and threw coins at the protesters suggesting they were paid by the Chinese government.
There were no arrests at the protests.
