Dalai Lama to speak at Maples on Oct. 15

The Dalai Lama will be visiting campus next October on a weeklong tour of the South Bay, sponsored by the University and the Gyuto Vajrayana Center, a Tibetan monastery in San Jose, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

On Oct. 14, His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso will be giving a public talk in Maples Pavilion and then another address later in the day at Memorial Church. He will be spending the majority of his visit, from Oct. 11-16, in Palo Alto and San Jose.

While the event at Maples is a public event, tickets will be allocated with priority to students, faculty and alumni.

The School of Medicine will also be co-hosting an all-day conference with the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education to host the Dalai Lama on Oct. 15.
