Spend A Day with the Dalai Lama at the University of Arkansas and Learn About the Promise of Non-Violence for the 21st Century
There will be a morning session and an afternoon session. Both events take place at Bud Walton Arena on the campus of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Check back soon for topics and times.
Tickets for both events on sale March 2011.
The Dalai Lama will offer a public talk as part of the university’s Distinguished Lecture Series.
The Dalai Lama’s visit is in response to invitations from professor Sidney Burris, director of the honors program in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, and Geshe Dorjee, a Tibetan monk and instructor in Fulbright College. The two met with the Dalai Lama during their most recent trip to India in summer 2009.
Past distinguished lecturers have included Benazir Bhutto, Ehud Barak, Robert Redford, Martin Luther King III and former President George H.W. Bush.
