… With 10 billion people expected to occupy Earth soon, we need to do a better job taking care of our planet …
…The Dalai Lama greeted about 6,000 people at the University of Portland’s Chiles Center Thursday morning, offering a message of peace during a multicultural gathering.
KOIN Local 6 reported that the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader arrived around 9 a.m. and spent time talking with people as he made his way into the Chiles Center. Once on stage, he put on a University of Portland visor and said it protects his eyes from all the lights. Purple is his favorite color, he told the audience.
The interfaith dialogue featured Muslim, Catholic, Jewish and Native American leaders who talked about the environment and spirituality. The overall message: with 10 billion people expected to occupy Earth soon, we need to do a better job taking care of our planet, according to KOIN Local 6.
