Describing himself as a simple Buddhist monk, His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama is believed to be a manifestation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, inspired by a wish to benefit all sentient beings and vowing to help humanity. Chief among His Holiness' principal commitments, he is concerned with encouraging people to be happy, advocating the cultivation of warm-heartedness and human values such as compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. In this keynote event of A&L's CREATING HOPE programming initiative, His Holiness is joined in conversation by Pico Iyer, a friend, observer and student of the Dalai Lama for more than 40 years.
Presented in association with the UCSB Department of Religious Studies, this year marking the 20th anniversary of the XIVth Dalai Lama Chair in Tibetan Buddhism and Cultural Studies, held by José Cabézon
