Buddhist nun Gen Kelsang Varahi will deliver the Montana State University 2011 Martin Luther King, Jr., lecture set for 7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 19, in SUB Ballroom A on the MSU campus.

Varahi's lecture will be, "Compassion and Wisdom: Our Two Greatest Assets," which focuses on using inner capabilities to reach potential to have a positive influence on humankind.

Varahi is a resident teacher at Vajrayogini Buddhist Center in Washington, D.C. She is noted for the sharp humor she brings to her teachings on Buddhism and to her examples for applying its principles in daily life.

"Gen Varahi's appearance will be in the spirit of love and positive change that Dr. King strove to spread in his lifetime," said Phenocia Bauerle, program coordinator of MSU's Diversity Awareness Office.

Varahi's lecture is sponsored by the Office of Student Activities, the Diversity Awareness Office and ASMSU Lively Arts & Lectures.

Varahi's lecture is free and open to the public. For additional assistance or for more information, call the Office of Student Activities, (406) 994-3591.
