The Dalai Lama is scheduled to visit Oahu April 14-16 where he plans two public talks and a series of conversations with local leaders. The visit is sponsored by the Hawaii Community Foundation and coincides with the organization’s new initiative, “Pillars of Peace Hawaii: Building Peace on a Foundation of Aloha.”
The public events are slated for the Stan Sheriff Center at the University of Hawaii Manoa. Tickets are available through the Pillars of Peace website.
The Dalai Lama is visiting Oahu at the invitation of Pierre and Pam Omidyar. Support is being provided by a lead grant from the Omidyar Ohana Fund in addition to other partners providing in-kind and cash donations. Pierre Omidyar is the publisher and CEO of Civil Beat.
"Peace is an active state of being-it is not passive," he said. "We hope that the Dalai Lama’s visit will inspire people to consciously embrace compassion and apply peace in their everyday lives."
