DALAI LAMA VISIT (article first published : 1999-11-21)

His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 for his non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet, will give a public address at the Durban Art Gallery on December 6 at 18h00. This will be the only public talk given in Durban and is an opportunity of a lifetime to hear this important person speak.

A man of peace who describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk, the Dalai Lama has consistently advocated policies of non-violence even in the face of extreme aggression. He has received 29 honorary doctorates, awards or prizes in recognition of his message of peace, non-violence and inter-religious understanding. It is appropriate that his address will be a precursor to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Print Portfolio which will be officially opened at the DAG on December 10 by Mme Danielle Mitterrand. The Dalai Lama's talk is free but bookings are essential. There is a limited amount of seating for early reservations but plenty of standing room. To book phone (031) 300-6238. Any enquiries to Carol Brown on 300-6230.
