Dalai Lama to give special teaching in Ann Arbor


ANN ARBOR, March 16, 2008: Unless recent events in Tibet sidetrack his Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama is scheduled to appear on April 19 and 20, 2008, in Ann Arbor, to teach “Engaging Wisdom and Compassion.” 


The Dalai Lama called for an international investigation into Communist China’s crackdown against protesters in Tibet, which his Holiness said is facing a “cultural genocide” and where his exiled government said 80 people were killed in violence. The demonstrations were the fiercest challenge to Beijing’s communist rule in the region in nearly two decades, leading to sympathy protests elsewhere and embarrassing China ahead of its Olympic Games.


The two-day program (www.dalailamaannarbor.com) with two sessions April 19 and one

session April 20, is jointly sponsored by Jewel Heart (www.jewelheart.org), The Tibet Fund (www.tibetfund.org), and the Garrison Institute (www.garrison.org).

Gelek Rimpoche


Tickets to some of the two-day teaching sessions are available from Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com).  The Earth Day—April 20—event at Crisler Arena is sold out.


The Dalai Lama is recognized worldwide for his compassion and tolerance, his promotion of human rights and inter-religious understanding, peace through non-violent conflict resolution and advocacy for the environment. Winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize, the Dalai Lama was the recent recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal.


Gelek Rimpoche, a distinguished Tibetan teacher, founder of Jewel Heart, and author of best seller Good Life, Good Death, says of the Dalai Lama’s visit, “We are delighted to welcome His Holiness to Jewel Heart and Michigan. His visit will uplift us during difficult times and be like the great fortune of a blue moon for spiritual practitioners of all disciplines.”


Jewel Heart, an educational and cultural institute, has served Ann Arbor since 1989, bringing Tibetan Buddhist traditions, wisdom, and principles into contemporary “Western” life.
