Dalai Lama’s visit to Boston prompts laughter, contemplation

The Dalai Lama’s first lecture during his three-day visit to Boston was filled with laughter and discussion on the meaning inter-faith harmony, as he spoke to a crowd of close to 2,000 in a packed ballroom at the Boston Marriott Copley Place hotel.


The talk was hosted by the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT, a think tank established in 2009 that focuses on the development of ethics and moral purpose in research and education.
