LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Dalai Lama plans to visit Louisville next year to visit and bless a Tibetan Buddhist temple and teaching center and make other public appearances.
The Courier-Journal reports the 77-year-old Dalai Lama is scheduled to visit May 19-21.
The Nobel Laureate and exiled spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists last visited Louisville in 1994 and last visited Kentucky in 1996. He regularly visits Bloomington, Ind., where his late brother founded a Buddhist center.
