IRVINE — It all started when someone asked Kelly Smith what she would do if she had a magic wand to change the world. Her answer — to help kids learn and realize what's special about them — sparked a dream that blossomed into the Center for Living Peace in Irvine. "I spent a lot of time as a young mother taking my kids to mommy-and-me classes in what I called the 'bubble' of Orange County," Smith said. "I thought: What if we were having fun and learning about the world outside of our own bubbles at the same time?

Last summer I strolled around the Jokhang — the most important temple in Tibet — with hundreds of Tibetan men, women and children. This spiritual practice, called circumambulation, goes on for hours at sunrise and sunset every day at various places sacred to Tibetan Buddhists. Inside the Jokhang, I rubbed elbows with devotees offering yak butter and prayers at each shrine. Will these practices survive in Tibet under Chinese rule? Or will the cobblestone streets be paved with “Tiananmen Squares” and the temples become museums for tourists?

UC IRVINE ? Growing up in Kenya in the 1940s, Wangari Maathai saw heaven daily ? or at least the local version. Her village was one of several at the base of Mount Kenya, and her neighbors believed that the mountain was a sacred place. No one in Maathai's village ventured onto Mount Kenya except the elderly and the most honorable. Citizens buried their dead with heads pointed toward the mountain. Then two things came to rural Kenya: Christianity and industrialization. Before long, Mount Kenya ceased to be the center of the universe ?

IRVINE — The Dalai Lama brought his trademark spiritual wisdom and lighthearted personality to UC Irvine on Wednesday in a speech capping this season of the university's Living Peace Series. Tenzin Gyatso, formally known as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, is believed by followers to be the reincarnation of a series of spiritual leaders. The Western world, however, generally knows the Dalai Lama for his books that stretch beyond Buddhism, with titles like "The Art of Happiness" and "Toward a True Kinship of Faiths.

When UC Irvine student Rajiv Ramdeo learned he was going to meet the Dalai Lama, the kind of inner peace espoused by Tibet's exiled spiritual leader eluded him. "I was anxious. I kept wondering what I was going to say to him," he said. Then Ramdeo, a daily practitioner of meditation, regained his center. "I figured that just being there in his presence would be enough."
