The Dalai Lama spoke to about 15,000 people at the KFC Yum Center as the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists began his visit.
He spoke for about 40 minutes Sunday and then took questions from the crowd. A line started forming around the arena hours before the speech.
The Dalai Lama started his visit earlier in the day by blessing a temple in suburban Louisville. He handed out prayer scarves at the event and told the crowd there that the temple should be known more as a place of learning than of chanting.
The case against a Bowling Green volleyball coach accused of having sex with an underage girl is headed to a grand jury.
Twenty-eight-year-old Brian Gifford was in Warren District Court Friday and waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
A Kentucky State Police investigation found that Gifford had sex on multiple occasions with a 15-year-old player that he met while coaching for the Barren River Area Volleyball Organization. Warren County Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Cohron says the investigation is ongoing.
"Our main concern is to make sure that any children affected by this individual come forward, and if anybody does have information we would ask them to contact Kentucky State Police or the Commonwealth's Attorneys Office," urges Cohron.
Gifford remains in the Warren County Regional Jail. His attorney Alan Simpson declined to comment Friday.
