Last week, the Dalai Lama spent several days at Stanford University, where he made compassion his focus. He laid the foundation with a large public address before an audience of 7,000. (Watch an excerpt above or the full talk below.) Then things got more focused when the spiritual leader of Tibet participated in a daylong conference about the neurobiological underpinnings of compassion. Hosted by Stanford's Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, the conference brought together important scientists from many disciplines – psychology, neuroscience, medicine, and economics. You can watch a recording of the conference here. It's all in video and ready to go.
