(TibetanReview.net, Jul03, 2015) – A sold-out crowd of more than 5,000 people who packed the Moody Coliseum at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, USA, sang “Happy Birthday” to Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader , the Dalai Lama, on Jul 1 afternoon, reported a blog posting on the dallasnews.com website Jul 1. The event was held to discuss compassion, peace and reincarnation.

Then Dalai Lama spoke largely about his philosophy of compassion during the event, which was moderated by ABC News political correspondent Cokie Roberts and hosted by the George W Bush Presidential Center and SMU in conjunction with the World Affairs Council of Dallas – Fort Worth.

The Dalai Lama had last visited SMU, and the Bush Center, in 2011, speaking at the 10th Hart Global Leaders Forum and receiving an honorary degree from SMU. During that visit he donated an early draft of what became the 1963 Tibetan Constitution. The Dalai Lama said the Constitution was a result of his belief that Tibet should have a democratic form of governance.

The Dalai Lama and former President George W Bush share a birthday: the Dalai Lama will turn 80 and Bush 69 on Jul 6, the report noted.
