The Dalai Lama says education and moral ethics is the key to happiness.

Speaking Tuesday to thousands of people at the University of Northern Iowa, the exiled Tibetan Buddhist leader told the crowd that relations between nations is important, but not as vital as "internal disarmament," which he says means accepting peace as a path to happiness.

It was the 74-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate's first visit to Iowa. He's on a six-day tour through the Midwest.

He admitted to being a lazy student but says as he grew older, he took an interest in studying for the sake of knowledge.
