Convocation of the 14th Dalai Lama

program

The University of Washington was generous enough to provide tickets to attend the convocation of the Dalai Lama to other universities and colleges throughout the state of Washington. UW awarded the Dalai Lama the honorary degree of Doctor of Human Letters.

Of the 50 tickets given to Washington State University, I was able to obtain one.

This was a pretty enlightening event. The Dalai Lama shared his hope for a demilitarized world with due attention to the climate and less of a disparity between the world’s rich and poor. He also participated with a question and answer forum with students from various schools.
