In two short weeks, His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama will visit the Northwest to attend an Environmental Summit in Portland hosted by Maitripa College, one of only two Tibetan Buddhist colleges in the US. The summit will feature guests and speakers from all walks of life, and many different faiths. Yangsi Rinpoche, Maitripa College President and Professor of Buddhist Studies, joined Margaret to talk more about the Dalai Lama's visit, the interfaith spiritual, as well as the scientific scope of the upcoming summit and about the studies offered at Maitripa College.
