Dalai Lama to Speak at Harvard

4.14.09

His Holiness the Dalai Lama will give a public address at Harvard on April 30, the Graduate School of Education and the Harvard Divinity School jointly announced yesterday (April 13).

The talk, titled "Educating the Heart," is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Memorial Church. Come back to the Harvard Magazine website for event coverage and a link to the University's live webcast. (Harvard faculty and staff members and students can visit this site to sign up for a ticket lottery, which closes April 15 at 5 p.m.)

As part of the same trip, the Dalai Lama will speak at Gillette Stadium, in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on May 2. Appearances in New York are also scheduled.

The Dalai Lama last came to Harvard (and spoke in the Memorial Church) in 2003. On that visit, President Lawrence H. Summers received the Buddhist leader in his office; read the Harvard Magazine account here.
