Dalai Lama's Visit Starts With Focus on Emory-Tibet Science Initiative

His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, a Presidential Distinguished Professor at Emory University, began a three-day visit to the university Oct. 17. At a press conference on Sunday, Emory President James W. Wagner presented the Dalai Lama with four new English/Tibetan science textbooks.

The presentation is the latest development in the Robert A. Paul Emory-Tibet Science Initiative. ETSI brings together the best of Western science and Tibetan Buddhist intellectual traditions to create new knowledge for the benefit of humanity. Emory faculty work with Tibetan Buddhist scholars to create a science curriculum for Tibetan monastics.
