His Holiness the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Dec. 10, 1989 as “A Buddhist Advocate for Peace and Freedom.” The Nobel Committee emphasized that he “based his Buddhist peace philosophy on reverence for all living things and the idea of a universal responsibility that embraces both man and nature.”
On Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020, ICT will host a special conversation with Geshe Thupten Jinpa, Buddhist scholar and principal English translator to the Dalai Lama. We’ll take a journey to hear his recollections of that glorious day in Oslo, Norway and learn about the Dalai Lama’s main commitments, teachings, philosophy, inspiration, and how he has shaped a message of peace and compassion to benefit not only Tibet but the entire world.
