There is a vast network of communities in Second Life and I can’t keep up with all of them, but while engaged in some tweets today I noticed one that said, the Dalai Lama is in Second Life. I was certainly curious but figured it would be all over by the time I got inworld. Then I saw the event was still underway, so what the heck, I jumped in to take a look.
Wow, the Dalai Lama’s avi even looked like him and his gestures and anims were very Lama-like. It’s really amazing, isn’t it. The event was being held at the Mayo Clinic sims and here’s the announcement.
|There he was, the Dalai Lama, speaking in SL!|
|There were 80 people in the audience
at the Mayo Clinic auditorium.
|And of course, there was an attention seeking griefer.|
I only caught the last 20 minutes or so. His speaking came through SL voice which was cool. I enjoy his answers to questions from people seeking direction in their lives. He treated each question with thoughtfulness, not relying on some jargon. I like this man.
