The Dalai Lama met Wednesday morning with two high-level Mormon church authorities during the Buddhist leader's two-day visit to Utah.

LDS apostle D. Todd Christofferson and fellow general authority L. Whitney Clayton greeted the Tibetan monk in a private meeting, according to a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

During a previous visit, in 2001, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama had an audience with the governing First Presidency of the Utah-based faith.
