Dalai Lama's Chicago Lectures Will Stream For Free Online

Posted By on Mon, Jul 11, 2011 at 10:08 AM

Lama Has All Your Lols

The big hitter, this Lama, will give two lectures in Chicago this upcoming Sunday and Monday on his second (and final) stop here in the States. After stopping in Washington D.C. earlier this week, for his 76th birthday, HHDL--I believe that is the abbreviation while His Holiness the Dalai Lama is Twattering--will finish up in Chicago with two separate lectures on the 17th and 18th. iClips, an online streaming video service usually featuring various music, comedy and social awareness issues will stream the Lama's lectures for free. On July  17th at the UIC Pavilion, HHDL will talk about  "Bridging The Faith Divide"  and the following day at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, he will lead a discussion on "Building Bridges: Religious Leaders In Conversation." Tickets are actually still available for the UIC event. Check the Lama's website here and his twitter for more info. The lectures will be streaming for free here.
