After working as Chairman with the Tibet Society and Relief Fund for many years the speaker gives a very brief outline of Tibetan history, religion and culture. His meetings with the Dalai Lama, trip to Tibet in 1994 and extraordinary visits to the Tibetan refugee settlements in remote parts of northern India is highlighted with his own photographs and tales of his experiences. The Dalai Lama’s message to the world is profound and yet put simply in terms of compassion for all, non-violence and attention to the most basic human values.
