Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama greets the audience as he arrives to speak on "A Human Approach to World Peace" at Presidency College in Kolkata, India, on Jan. 13, 2015.

The 14th Dalai Lama, who is in Boulder tomorrow, is venerated by many for his spiritual leadership and message of kindness. But he also has critics, and there's been talk that His Holiness could be the last Dalai Lama.

Sidney Burris co-founded the Tibetans in Exile Today program at the University of Arkansas and brought the Dalai Lama to that campus in 2011. Burris also wrote a column called "Is This Dalai Lama the Last?"

Burris spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
