Last week, the Dalai Lama visited Stanford for two days to discuss compassion, altruism and what it means to lead a meaningful life.
While on campus, he delivered a talk titled "The Centrality of Compassion in Human Life and Society." A clip from the event is shown in the video above and you can watch a webcast recording of the entire talk here.
Videos are also available of the Dalai Lama's lecture on leading a meaningful life, which was part of this year's Rathbun Visiting Fellow program, and a portion of the daylong conference sponsored by the School of Medicine's Center for Compassion and Altruism Research (CCARE) and Education titled "Scientific Explorations of Compassion and Altruism." You can watch the lecture here and the first two sessions of the conference here.
The events marked the Dalai Lama's third trip to Stanford. He first came in 1994, and returned in 2005 to talk about nonviolence, meditation, science and spirituality.
