His Holiness the Dalai Lama believes that the purpose of life is to be happy. Join us as His Holiness explores how we discover that which will bring about the greatest degree of happiness- compassion.

Strength Through Connection


Saturday, May 18, 2013
1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
University of New Orleans Lakefront Arena

The world is becoming smaller and one can easily recognize that everyone on earth is connected. We all suffer and experience joy. To meet the challenges of our times, though, we must develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. His Holiness will share his thoughts on how we as one global society can find strength through that connection and forge a pathway to peace and prosperity for all.
