The Dalai Lama spent time with students and faculty at Hunter College Friday and was given an honorary degree for his humanitarian work.

The Tibetan spiritual leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner is spending time in New York City as part of a six-state tour.

"That's my number one commitment, to intricately make known that the ultimate source of happiness, joyfulness and friendship is deep in here," he said. "Not money. Not power."

During his time in the city, the Dalai Lama will take part in a health conference at The Rockefeller University and will host a seminar on Buddhism at Avery Fisher Hall on Sunday. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
