Dalai Lama Coming to New Orleans

Posted:

The Dalai Lama and an entourage of Tibetan monks are heading to New Orleans in May 2013 in a rally of support for communities still recovering from Hurricane Katrina.  The 77-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner is expected to make at least two public speeches while he's in the city on May 16-18.  The visit of the exiled Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader will be sponsored by Tulane University's School of Social Work. Additional details of the visit will be released at a news conference at 10:30 a.m. today.  Katrina struck Aug. 29, 2005, killing about 1,800 people and unleashing a flood that swamped 80 percent of New Orleans.
