Through a talk entitled, “Beyond Religion: Ethics for the Whole World,” the Dalai Lama shared 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 also included a conversation between His Holiness and Cathedral Dean Gary Hall about the pursuit of peace. The Right Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, Episcopal bishop of Washington, led a question-and-answer session before concluding the program with a joint blessing with His Holiness.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the political and spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. Born July 6, 1935, in northeastern Tibet to a peasant family, his Holiness was recognized at the age of two, in accordance with Tibetan tradition, as the reincarnation of his predecessor the 13th Dalai Lama, and thus an incarnation of Avalokitesvara, the Buddha of Compassion. Forced into exile by the 1959 Chinese invasion of Tibet, he now resides in Dharamsala, India, as the leader of the Tibetan government in exile. He was awarded the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his lifelong commitment to nonviolence.
