The Eastern Washington University campus community turned out in large numbers to listen to visiting Tibetan speaker Geshe Thupten Phelgye talk about diversity and interfaith cooperation, social and community service and Middle Eastern issues last week.

A member of the Dalai Lama’s Tibetan Parliament in exile, Geshe Phelgye related his life experiences as a Buddhist monk and scholar to issues faced every day on the EWU campus and in the lives of EWU community members.

His discussion about diversity and interfaith cooperation, held in the Hargreaves Reading Room, attracted about 200 people.

Geshe Phelgye’s visit was sponsored by the EWU Compassionate Interfaith Society and co-sponsored by EWU’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and College of Arts and Letters.
