Dalai Lama Coming to Think Tank Land

Word on the street is that the Dalai Lama is coming to think tank land.  Sources deep inside the think tank world say that he will make an appearance at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) on or around February 20.

The Dalai Lama's public schedule does not list any appearances before February 22.  From Feb. 22-25 he will be giving talks in California.  In early March he will be speaking in Minnesota, and on March 7 he will be at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC.

Here is more about how AEI President Arthur Brooks, the new think tank king of happiness, landed the Dalai Lama at his conservative think tank.

Here is what the Dalai Lama had to say in 2012 during a stop in the US hosted by the Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a think tank established in 2009 that focuses on the development of ethics and moral purpose in research and education.

Here is more about the launching of Dalai Lama's think tank.

Update: Here is a link to the February 20 event with the Dalai Lama, which will be livestreamed.  The event is titled "Happiness, Free Enterprise, and Human Flourishing."
