The Dalai Lama to Visit Scotland

His Holiness, the Dalai Lama is set to visit Scotland this summer from 21st -23rd June. The 14th Dalai Lama was originally asked to come to Scotland in 2006 by The Conference of Edinburgh’s Religious Leaders, The Edinburgh Inter Faith Association, The University of Dundee, Dundee City Council, The City of Edinburgh, Highland Council and The National Library of Scotland. Rabbi David Rose, co-convener of The Edinburgh Inter Faith Association and Co-Chair of The Conference of Edinburgh’s Religious Leaders said: “We are again delighted to welcome the Dalai Lama to Edinburgh and Scotland. As a beacon of tolerance, common sense and morality in our world, this pre-eminent religious leader does us a great honour in again gracing our city. The diverse faiths of the city eagerly await his presence and his inspirational words.” The Dalai Lama is set to give three lectures while in Scotland, one in Edinburgh, Dundee and one on the Highlands. Tickets for his Holiness’ lecture in Edinburgh set a box office record for ticket sales. The Dalai Lama is due to give his talk at the Usher Hall on Friday 22nd June. Tickets for the Dalai Lama’s lecture in Inverness sold out in 24 hours after the event was announced. For more details on the visit, see http://www.dalailamascotland.org/.
