Dalai Lama to start a celebrity t-shirt line?

Fashionista blog reports that street fashion brand Tonic will launch a personally-branded t-shirt line with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, with proceeds benefiting charities of his choosing.

The tees haven't been released yet, but they'll debut online in October, after similar shirts from Donna Karan (in July) and Luella Bartley.
