The Dalai Lama plans a three-day visit to Oregon in the spring for discussions in Portland and Eugene about spirituality and the environment.

His office in India confirmed Monday that the visit is being planned by Maitripa College, a Buddhist institution in Portland. It’s scheduled May 9-11.

On a visit to Portland in 2001, the Oregonian reported, the Dalai Lama attracted 25,000 people to Pioneer Courthouse Square and a crowd filled Memorial Coliseum.

A schedule shows the visit beginning with an interfaith discussion and then a public talk followed by a question and answer period in Portland.
