(TibetanReview.net, Feb14’16) – After cancelling his US tours in late Sep 2015 on doctors’ advice that he took complete rest for several weeks, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, is scheduled to speak to students in the University of Utah this summer, said several local online reports.

The reports said Feb 12 that the Dalai Lama, 80, will talk about compassion and peace at the university’s Huntsman Center on Jun 21.

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota had earlier advised that he took complete rest and later treated him for a prostate condition which it said was common for a man at his age. The Dalai Lama had said he will resume his routine schedules in the second week of Mar 2016.

“It is a great honor and pleasure to welcome the Dalai Lama back to the University of Utah,” sltrib.com Feb 12 quoted university President David W Pershing as saying in a news release. “His health and well-being are of utmost concern, and we are happy he is doing well and we will have the opportunity to hear from him.”

The report said his time in Utah will be short – arriving Jun 20 and leaving two days later — and will include the public event, a couple of private meetings and an address before the state’s 260 or so members of the Tibetan community.

All local proceeds from the event will go to the Utah Tibetan Association to benefit a Tibetan Community Center, a gathering place to celebrate and encourage the preservation of Tibetan culture.

The Dalai Lama previously visited Utah in 2001.
