The theme of the Dalai Lama’s presentation will be compassion and universal responsibility followed by a Q&A session. Guests are encouraged to submit their questions prior to the event online.

The Dalai Lama has committed his life to three major principles: The promotion of basic human values in the interest of human happiness, the fostering of interreligious harmony and the preservation of Tibet’s Buddhist culture of peace and nonviolence.

Exiled from Tibet in 1959 during the uprising of Tibetans against the Chinese army, the Dalai Lama escaped to India and established the Central Tibetan Administration to meet the needs of refugees and seek to maintain their culture. He has since traveled the globe promoting peace and compassion and in 1989 he received the Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent struggle to free Tibet.
