UC San Diego invites all local community members to the 14th Dalai Lama’s public talk. His message of nonviolence, interreligious understanding and inclusiveness reflects our shared concern for global unity in an increasingly polarized world.
The 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk. But to the world he is a renowned peace advocate, a beacon of hope for humanity, sharing inspirational messages with international audiences who range from young students to world leaders.
