On Tuesday, September 19, 2006, His Holiness the Dalai Lama graced the University at Buffalo Stadium (UB North Campus) as he delivered his address on the theme of promoting peace across borders through education. This marked the culmination of a historic three-day visit to Buffalo by His Holiness.
Prior to the lecture, the Dalai Lama received a SUNY honorary doctorate in humane letters. The Dalai Lama actually spoke openly about getting so many degrees from various institutions, but he has yet to attend a single class. He joked that he must be doing something right. 😛
Angela apparently memorized his speech (either that or she took lots of notes), while I still have a lot of video footage to chew through. I’ll probably post interesting excerpts on YouTube, since the whole thing is just too long to watch. While you wait, the local Channel 7 news network has the scoop on His Holiness’ first day in Buffalo, so here’s the video.
