His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, Presidential Distinguished Professor at Emory University, will return to Atlanta on October 8-10, 2013, for a series of public and campus events.
Two events—a public talk titled The Pillars of Responsible Citizenship in the 21st Century Global Village, and an afternoon panel session on Secular Ethics in Education—are scheduled for Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. Admission to both (or either) events is included with each ticket purchased. Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, April 26 at 10:00 a.m. at http://www.gwinnettcenter.com, in-person at the box office at The Arena at Gwinnett Center, or by phone at 1-888-9-AXS-TIX. (Tickets will go fast!)
In addition to the public events, His Holiness the Dalai Lama will spend two days (October 9 and 10, 2013) on the campus of Emory University teaching students and engaging with the faculty. Emory community tickets to the on-campus events will be free and available through a lottery beginning September 1 through this website. A traditional Buddhist teaching will be arranged on campus through Drepung Loseling Monastery Inc. in affiliation with Emory University for their members and guests.
Public tickets are not available for the on-campus events/teachings except through sponsorship opportunities. See http://dalailama.emory.edu/support for details on how you can further the work of the Emory-Tibet Partnership as they work to bridge two worlds for one common humanity.
As in previous visits, His Holiness offers his appearance for the promotion of peace and does not receive any speaker fee. Funds generated through ticket sales are used solely to cover expenses, with any surplus being disbursed to charitable organizations under the advisement of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
