On June 6, 1999, the Star Tribune reported that Steven Seagal spoke at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul to an audience of 600 on June 4th, 1999 to raise money for schools in Tibet and for the Minneapolis Shambhala Center, which is part of an international network that promotes Buddhist teachings. Seagal, a devout Buddhist who was controversially dubbed an incarnate lama in 1997, is currently on hiatus from Hollywood in order to devote more time to his "compulsive teaching sprees."
