SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Dalai Lama delivered his message of peace and compassion Tuesday to thousands of people during a visit to Utah that included a luncheon with the governor and a planned meeting with senior LDS Church leaders.
The Tibetan spiritual leader encouraged the audience at the University of Utah to start with themselves and their families to spread a sense of wonder in humanity.
“Who creates violence? Who destroys peace? Not God, but you. So you have the responsibility to solve this problem,” he said.
The self-effacing Nobel Peace Prize laureate wore an honorary medal on a thick chain and a white university visor during the talk punctuated by his hearty chuckles.
