A planned visit to UCLA by His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been cancelled. The Dalai Lama was scheduled to participate in a lecture Monday morning and a symposium in the afternoon, but he is unable to travel due to illness, according to a university statement. The 75-year-old Tibetan religious leader is said to have delayed his flight to Los Angeles from Tokyo at the advice of his doctors. He is currently recovering from a sore throat, according a statement by a Dalai Lama spokesman. Ticket holders for the morning lecture have been notified, and refunds have been offered. The afternoon symposium, titled “Buddhism and Neuroscience: A Discussion on Attention, Mental Flexibility and Compassion,” will proceed without the Dalai Lama, according to the university statement. The event, to be held in Royce Hall at 1:30 p.m., will feature three UCLA professors of neuroscience and psychiatry and a fourth professor who will moderate. The university is unsure if the Dalai Lama will reschedule his appearance at UCLA, but information will be updated as it is found out, a spokeswoman said. Read more...
