The Dalai Lama visits Birmingham and UAB on October 24-26th and will talk about secular ethics, tranquility, and world peace. The UAB Philosophy Department looks forward to his visit.
UAB Philosophy Department is not an official sponsor of his visit and knows no further details of the visit, including when he will speak at UAB and to whom. During his visit to Birmingham, the Dalai Lama will not appear in any public events on the UAB campus. Also, the Dalai Lama receives no fees for speaking, but the costs of tickets are to rent the venues where he speaks and to pay for security.
