LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Dalai Lama is spreading his message of non-violence and compassion to a group of Kentucky students.

The Nobel laureate is scheduled to speak to middle and high school students Tuesday morning at the Kentucky Center for the Arts in Louisville.

It will help cap his three-day visit to Kentucky's largest city.

The spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists began his visit to Louisville on Sunday, when he spoke to about 15,000 people at the KFC Yum Center.

It's his first trip to Louisville in nearly two decades and is part of a multistate tour of the U.S.
