Minneapolis: Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama has confirmed that he will be travelling to Minnesota on May 8th, 2011 to host a series of spiritual events in the city. The conference has been jointly organized by The Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota and the Tibetan American Foundation of Minnesota, which will see His Holiness' first official visit to the city since 2001. The premise of the visit is based around the theme "One Heart, One Mind, One Universe".

Minnesota has the second largest concentration of Tibetan Americans in the United States and his visit has already created much anticipation in the city. "The Tibetan American community of Minnesota is overjoyed about the eminent visit of His Holiness,' said Tsewang Ngodup, president of the board of directors of Tibetan American Foundation of Minnesota.

On the morning of May 8, His Holiness will conduct a special "Medicine Buddha Empowerment" initiation and in the afternoon he will feature in a public address entitled "Peace Through Inner Peace". Tickets for all events will be available through the Northrop ticket office from the October 18th, 2010.
