She delivers the information in a focus and it is based on context in the issues of a religious harmony.

Second, Dalai Lama wants to be optimistic and centers his wants of creating a religious harmony to be unimpeded. The utterances are supported by not only a manner expression such as having a deep breathy voice and shaking his body, showing his finger up and down, but also the intonation in a falling tone. The findings imply that to achieve a mutual understanding in communication, someone should avoid the great mismatch in communication in addition to meet the purposes of communication, have a sense of awareness, and etiquette in the arena of language usage.
