VAJRA SUTRA TEACHING
The Vajra Sutra is one of the most well-known sutras of Mahayana Buddhism. In this Sutra, the Buddha teaches the most profound teachings on the concept of emptiness, the notion of selflessness and the path to enlightenment.
This is very difficult to comprehend and understand. Thus His Holiness will explain this to us gently and thoroughly. The Vajra represents the discriminative wisdom that can cut through all delusions and bring us over to the other shore - the shore of no afflictions, the shore of liberation, and the shore of enlightenment.

PUBLIC TALK: THE POWER OF COMPASSION IN TURBULENT TIMES
His Holiness the Dalai Lama will give a public talk on The Power of Compassion in Turbulent Times. The idea behind the theme is to consider people's fears and anxieties caused by the state of our world - the violence, the politics and the threat of large and smaller scale harm. His Holiness has been committed to promoting basic human values where ever he goes in the world.
His Holiness says in one of his talks “The more compassionate our mind is, the better our brain functions. If our mind develops fear and anger, then when that happens, our brain functions more poorly.”
Come and hear His Holiness discuss ways in which individuals can cultivate virtuous qualities and great compassion within themselves to bring about inner peace, create harmony in their communities and promote tolerance throughout the world.
The Public Talk will be followed by a Q&A during which His Holiness will answer questions previously submitted by the audience.
