ATLANTA -- His Holiness the Dalai Lama will return to metro Atlanta this fall for a series of events.

The Dalai Lama is a Presidential Distinguished Professor at Emory University and will be on campus Oct. 8-10.

He will also give a public talk at the Arena at Gwinnett Center on Tuesday, Oct. 8, beginning at 9:30 a.m. The event will feature two lectures -- "The Pillars of Responsible Citizenship in the 21st Century Global Village," and a panel discussion called "Secular Ethics and Education."

Tickets go on sale this week and include admission to both talks. They can be purchased beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, Apr. 26.

The Dalai Lama will spend his time at Emory teaching students and engaging with faculty members. Tickets to his Emory events are free and will be distributed through a lottery in September.

"The Dalai Lama has made invaluable contributions to our understanding of what it means to be an ethical citizen of the world," Emory president James Wagner said in a statement. "We are looking forward to the return of Emory's Presidential Distinguished Professor and the opportunities for our faculty and students to engage with him on these vital issues."
