Dalai Lama Tickets
Dalai Lama TicketsTenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, is the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism. He is also the leader of the Tibetan government in exile. Because of tension between the Free Tibet movement and China, the Dalai Lama can be a controversial figure. However, His Holiness is known primarily for sharing an inspirational message of peace and nonviolence, winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. He is often found with political figures, holding audiences in the past with Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He has also made appearances with celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Russell Brand and Whoopi Goldberg.
A Message Grounded in MeditationHis Holiness the Dalai Lama follows a schedule that is centered on daily times of meditation. He often begins his day at three in the morning with two hours of prayer and meditation. After a break for breakfast at five, his meditation practice continues until nine. He also ends his day with two hours of meditative practice. In between, he spends his time studying Buddhist texts, teaching lessons and holding audiences with visitors. For many Westerners, this may seem like a great deal of time spent doing nothing. Within the Buddhist world, such practice is the key to a life of happiness, allowing for a centered mind that does not react violently but responds peacefully. The meditative life is a key part of the Dalai Lama’s message.
