Dalai Lama Speaks at National Cathedral

You may see a heavy police presence around the National Cathedral Friday, where the Dalai Lama is scheduled to speak. 

According to the Cathedral, the Dalai Lama will address a packed house in a talk called, "Beyond Religion: Ethics for the Whole World." The discussion will include the Dalai Lama's "vision for leading an ethical, happy and spiritual life" and a "road map to building a more compassionate and peaceful world." A question and answer session will follow.

This is the Dalai Lama's fourth visit to the Cathedral.

If you weren't able to get a ticket to the sold-out event, you can view it online via the Cathedral's livestream. The event begins at 9:30 a.m.

Cathedral officials say the Nobel laureate from Tibet last spoke at the Cathedral on Sept. 11, 2003, when thousands gathered inside and outside the Cathedral to hear his message of  "love and compassion among religious groups."
