Tibet's exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, right, stands alongside his Madame Tussauds wax double at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Friday. The Dalai Lama is on a national tour of Australia with events throughout the visit carrying the message "Beyond Religion; Ethics for a Whole World". 

On Thursday, he told reporters that Tibetans setting themselves on fire to protest against Chinese rule are having little effect on Beijing's policies, Reuters reported.
