Dalai Lama in Ohio

April 11, 2010

Featured Article

H.H. the Dalai Lama will visit my old alma mater, Miami University in Oxford, Ohio from Oct. 20-22, 2010 to meet with students and give a public address. There are details on the visit here. but it looks like more specific ones will not be announced until Fall. In January 2009, Miami and the College of Higher Tibetan Studies signed an affiliation agreement, launching the Tibetan studies semester program for Miami students in the Dharamsala region of northern India. The program offers courses on Buddhist philosophy, Tibetan medicine and meditation, as well as an intensive sequence of language courses in Chinese, Tibetan and Hindi.

If you have never attended an event featuring the Dalai Lama, I highly recommend you stay atop the details of this one and whatever ticketing or admission process they set up. Miami is a lovely, classic campus in the middle of the cornfields and Oxford, about a little under two hours northwest of Cincinnati,  is quite the pleasant little town. (Ah, I could tell some tales of under-grad days that would singe the fuzz on my meditation teacher’s pate). Here are two articles I wrote of encounters along with dear friends at events featuring the Dalai Lama, that will give you a sense of the flavor of an event with him. Depending on the venue and crush of people there, of course — your Dalai Lama experiences may vary:
