Moments before the Dalai Lama took the stage at Emory University in Atlanta, the chattering crowd grew respectfully quiet. The exiled spiritual leader of Tibet and Nobel Peace Prize recipient paused for a moment on the corner of the stage and laughed as he adjusted his microphone in the folds of his red and gold gown. He shrugged and walked across the stage bowing and waving to the crowd.
