"Madison — Dispensing wisdom and radiating warmth, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, told a rapt audience Wednesday that 'this 21st century should be a century of dialogue.'
"As he reflected on the wars of his lifetime, from World War II to present conflicts, the Dalai Lama said 'unlike (the) 20th century, this century must be (a) century of peace, of nonviolence.'
"The 'World We Make' event, in the Capitol Theater at the Overture Center for the Arts, was the public highlight of the Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader's 10th visit to Madison.
"Wearing a crimson robe, black shoes and glasses, the Dalai Lama, 80, eagerly placed on his head a cap that read, 'Change Your Mind, Change the World.'
"'It's practical,' he said, peering at the audience with the stage lights beating down.
"Richard Davidson, founder of the Center for Healthy Minds and a professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the Dalai Lama's main message to the audience was that 'we need to take responsibility now for cultivating positive qualities like kindness and compassion.'
"'We can all have a positive dramatic impact on the world if we take seriously that we can train our mind to nurture these qualities,' Davidson said."
