(TibetanReview.net, Jan29, 2015) – The Dalai Lama is to visit the University of Colorado (CU) in the US city of Boulder, Colorado State, over Oct 20-21 this year, said colorado.edu Jan 27, citing statements from the university and its co-host, the Tibetan Association of Colorado (TAC). The schedules were still being worked out.
The statement said the TAC, CU Student Government (CUSG) and the CU Cultural Events Board were hosting the campus visit, with the support of CU-Boulder’s administration.
The theme of the Dalai Lama’s two-day event is “Compassion in Action,” reflecting the way the 1989 Nobel Peace laureate serves as an embodiment of compassion as a role model. His visit to Boulder will focus on methods of incorporating the core values of compassion and ethics into daily life, leading to happiness, peace, ethical behavior and social harmony, the statement said.
It also quoted Chancellor Philip P DiStefano as saying, “It’s a long-standing tradition at CU-Boulder to host the world’s best and brightest achievers. We all benefit from hearing their stories. In that spirit, we are delighted to welcome and learn from the Dalai Lama.”
The statement added that the visit will be accompanied by a multiday community celebration of Tibetan culture, including Tibetan foods, an exhibition of Tibetan art and culture, traditional performances of dance and song, a Tibetan market and more.
