A Peaceful Plan: Dalai Lama to make Louisville visit

Tickets for May 19 and 20 dates at Yum! Center are on sale



On May 20, the Dalai Lama will give two separate public talks at KFC Yum! Center concentrating on Buddhist teachings. Wrapping up his visit, he will also speak to previously selected school children about nonviolence and compassion May 21 at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.

Anticipating a great number of guests attending the events, Fischer said the impact on the community and on individuals themselves will be dramatic.

“The Dalai Lama, as I mentioned, is such as iconic figure for peace and justice and compassion that he’s going to inspire people in ways we don’t know about. So our mission should be to get as many people to hear what his message is,” Fischer said.

Tickets for the May 19 and 20 events are on sale at the Yum Center’s box office and online at For more information on these and other happenings leading up to the visit, drop by the official event website at
