BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Dalai Lama told a crowd in Boulder on Thursday that people should not try to impose their religious beliefs on other people.

He also says religion can offer forgiveness and ways to reduce afflictions.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/zhqmyfx ), the spiritual leader from Tibet urged compassion for other people and a global awareness that could make the world more peaceful.

During his visit to teach lessons at the University of Colorado-Boulder, the Dalai Lama put on a bicycle helmet given to him as a gift from Boulder Mayor Suzanne Jones, saying the helmet is a symbol of protection people need as they struggle to make a better life.
