Bodhisattvas likely do not care much about football, however, USC officials are saying it looks like Nobel Peace Prize #winning Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, will rally to make it to campus on Tuesday for two speaking engagements despite Monday's health-related cancelation at a UCLA symposium on Buddhism and Neuroscience.

His first-ever visit to the university, the Dalai Lama is scheduled for two appearances on Tuesday, May 3 at USC beginning with a morning talk on Secular Ethics, Human Values and Society at the Galen Center, and a follow-up question and answer session. In the afternoon, USC’s Bovard Auditorium will host a panel of "world-renowned scholars" for a discussion titled Secular Ethics: Origins, Elements and Their Function in Society, notes the USC website.
