Dalai Lama preaches peace, compassion in W&M visit

The Dalai Lama, Tibet’s long-exiled spiritual leader, brought a message of peace and compassion Wednesday to an appreciative audience of 8,200 at the College of William and Mary.


Addressing the crowd in William and Mary Hall as “my dear brothers and sisters,” the Nobel laureate said people must rise above hate, anger and suspicion and extend compassion not just to those close to them but to strangers and even their enemies.
