Positive news from Tibet


Tibetan monks turn to USA to train minds in science

Some of the newest students at Emory University's student body may act like typical college kids, but there's a key difference: They're Tibetan monks sent by the Dalai Lama to the United States to learn science.
"The monastic institution is traditionally the learning center, so we must put science in this institution. Even Buddha himself said 'All my followers shouldn't accept my teachers out of faith, but out of constant investigation.'"
- Dalai Lama
