Members of the International Shugden Community rally against the Dalai Lama, who they accuse of religious intolerance, across the street from the site of the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton in Washington, February 5, 2015. U.S. President Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama exchanged greetings but did not meet directly at a religious event in Washington closely watched by Beijing, which has warned against any meetings with Tibet's exiled spiritual leader. Both figures were at an annual prayer breakfast in Washington where Obama was scheduled to speak about the importance of religious freedom. The Dalai Lama also attended, seated at a table in the front row across from the president. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst    (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS RELIGION) - RTR4OCNA
