We invite you to view this event live online Friday morning, March 7, at 9:30 am EST. Following the talk, His Holiness will continue in a pubilc question and answer session drawing from questions submitted by you online in advance.

Through a talk entitled, “Beyond Religion: Ethics for the Whole World,” the Dalai Lama will share his vision and path to leading an ethical, happy, and spiritual life, and offer a road map to building a more compassionate and peaceful world. The program will also include a conversation between His Holiness and Cathedral Dean Gary Hall about the pursuit of peace. A question and answer session moderated by Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde will conclude the program.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the spiritual and temporal leader of the six million Tibetan people. He was awarded the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his lifelong commitment to non-violence and has consistently advocated policies of non-violence, even in the face of extreme aggression. The Dalai Lama last spoke at the Cathedral on September 11, 2003, to 7,000 people gathered both inside and on the lawn of the Cathedral where he encouraged love and compassion among religious groups.

Unfortunately tickets are sold out, but we invite you to join us online March 7th to watch the live webcast.
