Getting a rare chance to meet one of the most important religious leaders in the world, a gaggle of celebs headed to The Lourdes Foundation Q&A with the Dalai Lama.

Eager to touch base with his Holiness were Nikki Reed, Eva Longoria, Malin Akerman, Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Naomi Watts.

Though today he was mingling with famous faces, yesterday the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner spoke about "Non Violence and the Effects of Compassion in the 21st Century."

Posting a photo of herself and the Buddhist leader, Eva gushed, "There's nothing more contagious than the @DalaiLama's laugh! What an honor to be with His Holiness today!"
