Upcoming Events-


Dalai Lama

The University of Utah and the Utah Tibet Foundation are honored to present a public talk by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet at the Huntsman Center on the U campus. The talk entitled “Compassion and Universal Responsibility,” will address key themes of His Holiness’ life and teachings.

The spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, the Dalai Lama has committed his life to three major principles: the promotion of basic human values in the interest of human happiness, the fostering of inter-religious harmony and the preservation of Tibet’s Buddhist culture of peace and non-violence.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama does not charge a speaking engagement fee and no aspect of His Holiness' visit is being used to profit financially. Any funds raised through sponsorships and tickets sales will be used only to cover expenses for the events benefiting humanity. Should there be any surplus fund from His Holiness' events, that surplus will be distributed to charitable organizations under the advisement of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
