Please join the UCLA Center for Buddhist Studies for an engaging and thought-provoking talk with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  We are honored to welcome His Holiness to Royce Hall on Monday, May 2.  The talk is co-sponsored by the UCLA International Institute and UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations.

Along with compassion, wisdom is one of the twin pillars of Buddhist thought and practice. But what is wisdom? What does it have to do with how we understand personal identity? What kind of engagement with the world does it imply? How does wisdom enhance the expression of compassion? In a public talk delivered in Royce Hall, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will draw upon his decades of study and training in traditional Buddhist sources, and his deep personal experience as a Buddhist monk, to explore what true wisdom is and how it may be applied in daily life. After the public address, UCLA Center for Buddhist Studies Director Robert Buswell will pose to His Holiness selected questions submitted in advance. The UCLA student submitting the best question online will receive a complimentary ticket and be acknowledged by name at the event.

The public talk begins at 10:00 a.m..  There will be no entry after 9:45 a.m..  Please visit www.dalailama.ucla.edu for full details.
