There’s been a lot of attention surrounding the Dalai Lama’s visit to Louisville on May 19.

But what some people might not know is that his event will be the final act in week of teachings on the theme of compassion.

On May 14-19, The Festival of Faiths will bring in teachers and educators from an array of traditions. These teachers include the Tibetan Buddhist monk, Matthieu Ricard, and Franciscan friar, Richard Rohr. And, as Owsley Brown, the co-chair of the program told WFPL's Jonathan Bastian, at the center of these teachings will be an iconic photograph.
