Llunarllama and I got the chance to see the Dalai Lama in Indianapolis today. We drove down Thursday night for a Friday morning public talk. Some of the monks stayed in our hotel and took advantage of the continental breakfast.
That dot of red on stage … that’s the Dalai Lama! The experience was very cool. I have never seen him live and it was awe inspiring. His talk was pretty basic, only scraping the surface of Buddhist principles, but I think that’s to be expected at such an open venue. Overall the trip was totally worth it!
