Inner peace comes at a price
University of Minnesota student Kevin Reza writing in the Minnesota Daily about his frustration over having to pay up to $250 to see the Dalai Lama speak at the U:
“I doubt that I am the only one who thinks it is outrageous to charge any amount of money for college students to listen to the Dalai Lama. Especially the week before finals, a time when we could all use a little inner peace.”
