This 90minute dialogue between the Dalai Lama and middle and senior high school students at the 'Youth engaged in compassion' that took place in the Kentucky Center for the Arts in Louisville, on May 21, 2013.

The Dalai Lama talks about the difference between the human brain and computers, the importance of compassion, where it comes from and why it is important. He mostly answers students questions such as: looking back at yourself when you were 13 what advice would you give yourself? How can students get peace when there are such high academic pressures? Why do you think compassion is more important than other qualities? What is fear and has he ever experienced it? Amongst others.

Fun and inspiring. I hope you enjoy it and please let us know what you find useful.
