Friday as the Dalai Lama prepared to speak at Middlebury College an emailed press release announced that the college
would be quote "fully divesting its endowment from war." Without

occasion of the Tibetan leader’s visit to announce it would no longer invest in
companies working in the defense industry.
Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibet, took a message for young people to Middlebury College on Friday. He
told young people that this was their century and urged them to make it one of
peace, which he said can only come through educating the heart to learn
generosity and compassion.
