The Dalai Lama has today become one of the world?s most widely respected moral leaders. He is a champion for human rights, equality and harmony between religions and the peaceful resolution of conflict. In 1989, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his advocacy of non-violence.

The Dalai Lama, the temporal and religious leader of the Tibetan people, fled from his homeland of Tibet to exile in India in 1959. Earlier this month, his representatives concluded a fourth round of talk with Chinese officials aimed at starting genuine negotiations over the future of Tibet.

The talk at the MCI center, entitled ?Global Peace through Compassion,? starts at 3:00 pm on Sunday, November 13. Tickets are $15 (with a student ID) $25, $40, $60 and $100. Tickets are available by phone through Ticketmaster at 202-397-7328 and in person at Ticketmaster Outlets or the MCI Center Box Office. Or, go online to www.dalailamadc.org.
