Dalai Lama cancels all U.S. visits

Sept. 25, 2015

The Office of Tibet in Washington, D.C., today informed the Tibetan Association of Colorado that the Dalai Lama will not be able to attend any of his planned events in the United States next month for medical reasons.

The following is from the Office of Tibet:
“His Holiness arrived in the United States earlier this week for a medical evaluation. Upon completion of the evaluation, the doctors have advised that His Holiness take complete rest. As a result, His Holiness will be returning to Dharamsala, India, next week and will not be able to visit the United States next month. We deeply regret cancellation of the visit.”

The Office of Tibet apologizes to everyone who has worked on this event and purchased tickets. Ticket costs will automatically be refunded to ticket holders’ credit cards for all Dalai Lama events starting the week of Oct. 5. The CU Athletics Ticket Office will contact those patrons whose credit cards have since expired or changed to make alternative refund arrangements. Tickets purchased through Event-Brite will also be handled in the same way.

The events at CU-Boulder were being coordinated by the Tibetan Association of Colorado, the CU Student Government (CUSG) and the CU-Boulder Cultural Events Board. The Office of Tibet has offered to consider rescheduling the visit. The Tibetan Association of Colorado will provide more information on this possibility if or when it becomes available.

Further information will be posted at www.colorado.edu/dalailama and dalailamacolorado.com

Tibetan Association of Colorado announces live video streaming of His Holiness the Dalai Lama Boulder event and free tickets to schools.

September 22, 2015

His Holiness the Dalai Lama talk on October 21st at Boulder CU will be live streamed. TAC will offer high definition live video-streaming of all his talks at no charge, Tibetan Association of Colorado announced today.

On October 21st His Holiness the Dalai Lama will give a public teaching in the morning and a public talk in the afternoon. The public talk is titled “The Wisdom of Compassion: Creating Peace, Happiness, and Meaningful Lives in the 21st Century”.

“The public tickets for the October 21st event went on sale in August and were sold out within few hours,” said Tenzin Tashi, TAC spokesperson. “This shows tremendous amount of interests by public to attend His Holiness’ talk and to be in his presence. To allow all those who cannot attend in person to enjoy His Holiness’ visit to the fullest, TAC will offer  high-definition live video-streaming of all his talks at no charge. People can tune in through personal computers or join together for community viewings. Giant screens at Unity of Boulder will provide the sense of being as close to the events as possible. Naropa University will also offer viewings. Technical support from experts, including the manager of archives from the Office of His Holiness in India, will be available to any group who wishes to organize a community viewing.”

The Tibetan Association of Colorado also announced today that a substantial amount of free bleacher tickets will go towards schools. Since His Holiness takes great interest in engaging with younger generation in developing compassionate and loving heart; TAC is planning on providing free bleacher tickets to schools in and around Boulder to involve more students. Underprivileged students will take precedence over other applicants. These bleacher tickets are reserved specially for students as well as for extreme needy cases. Schools who want to apply for free limited bleacher tickets for their students contact us at Guests@DalaiLamaColorado.com.

The live streaming will be available on www.DalaiLama.com; the official website of His Holiness and on www.ColoradoTibetans.org; the official website of Tibetan Association of Colorado. For more information on the event contact us at Info@DalaiLamaColorado.com.
