Macalester College has a pretty awesome feather to add to its hat. The St. Paul liberal arts school just announced His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet will be visiting Minnesota in March, and will give a free talk on campus.

Information at this point in time is pretty sparse, as ticketing and other details are still being hammered out. What we do know is that the Dalia Lama will be giving a talk at the college on March 2 titled, "The Nature of Happiness, Fulfillment, and Embodiment." He'll be giving the chat on the start day for Losar, also known as the Tibetan New Year.

The Dalai Lama will be in town a day earlier as part of the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, held annually in the Twin Cities in March, as he is the 2014 honored laureate. The pacifist activist received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, and continues to preach non-violence and compassion while voicing concern for the environment.

The talk at Macalester College will be free, but tickets will be required. We'll post more info as it becomes available.

Oh, you mean the Dalai Lama of Tibet? I hear that one's great. When he came to Seattle a few years ago, I swear everyone was nicer to each other for two or three days.

Actually he comes to the Twin Cities quite often because of the large Tibetan community here.

Of course he is coming to Macalaster. Loved a recent posting in which he spoke about farting on airplanes. I want to meet him, and the new Pope...at breakfast

I wonder if his visit will cure the student body of its "air of entitlement" problem.

He comes here quite a bit. Pretty sure I've seen him at the mall a couple of times. You probably have too and didn't realize it.
