I was able to see the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, speak today at the Viejas Arena at San Diego State! Let me just say, the crowd was truly amazing. And as someone who has worked,seen,heard and listened to the words of several different religious groups speak, the atmosphere in the arena was drastically different today then it has ever been.
I wish I could say that I took a lot from the lecture, but I am not sure if it was just my hearing or the maybe it was his microphone but I could only make out few words of his lecture every few minutes. I am planning on watching it online where they can enhance the audio quality.
SDSU students were excited for it, tickets sold out in less than a day.
