On May 18, 2003 The Boston Globe reported that "the Dalai Lama is planning a four-day visit to Greater Boston in September... the Dalai Lama is planning to bless a new temple in Medford that has become a religious center for Boston's small community of Tibetans, and will participate in a two-day conference at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology with scientists who have been attempting to quantify the effects of meditation by monitoring Buddhists' brains. The Dalai Lama also plans to meet with students and faculty at Harvard, and to give a public talk to as many as 13,000 at the FleetCenter."
