This is a quick post in reference to the title. I'm super excited. I'm going to see the Dalai Lama tomorrow morning!!
I learned about this way back in March and bought a ticket. I figured this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and he was not going to live forever. I seriously think I would have kicked myself if I didn't decide to go or made some excuse. Though I do not affiliate with a religion, (though do lean towards Buddhism) I've always loved what the Dalai Lama has had to say, especially about his stance towards non-violence and having compassion. towards humans and animals.
A good friend of mine is also going, so we're hoping to meet up there and go out to lunch afterwards.
I'll post all about it when I get back. It may not be until the end of the weekend as I'm going to an all day dog seminar on Saturday.
The Dalai Lama is traveling quite a bit with next stops in WI, IA, and NY. You can look here at his full schedule.
