The University of Miami is honored to host a return visit of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, who will speak on “The Quest for Happiness in Challenging Times,” at the BankUnited Center at 1:30 p.m. on October 26. The event, which is intended for the UM community, will be open to UM students, faculty, staff and invited guests.
In 2004, the Dalai Lama spoke on “A Human Approach to World Peace” to the University of Miami, which honored him with an honorary doctorate of humane letters in recognition of his role as both a spiritual and world leader. Based in Dharamsala in Northern India since his exile from Tibet more than 50 years ago, His Holiness the Dalai Lama leads his people in a non-violent struggle for justice in their homeland.
“We are honored once again to host His Holiness the Dalai Lama on our campus,” said University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala. “His Holiness teaches us all an important lesson in hope, compassion, and humility.”
