While are not Buddhist , we crossed the Tiber, the Dalai Lama has an admiral commitment to peaceful conflict resolution, when possible.
We believe he will also visit some EPA schools when he is here.
"The Dalai Lama will be at Stanford for two days in October, returning to the university to discuss compassion, altruism and what it means to lead a meaningful life.
Tibet's exiled political and spiritual leader was invited by Philip Pizzo, dean of the School of Medicine. The Rev. Scotty McLennan, dean of the Office for Religious Life, is co-sponsoring the events scheduled for mid-October."

It is interesting that the trips is sponsored by a group we have always found to be very creative and interesting.
"The Rathbun fellowship was created in 2008 in memory of the late law Professor Harry Rathbun and his late wife, Emilia.
The fellows, who have included retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and former Secretary of State George Shultz, give a speech at Memorial Church, reflecting on what it takes to live a life of meaning."
The Rathbuns have a fascinating history in both the Palo Alto and the Stanford Community and a commitment to Peace and Civility going back a long way.
Worth a report by PA Weekly on the history and this visit
