Title: The Dalai Lama Global Vision Summit
Post by: Chaz on October 17, 2020, 06:56:50 PM
I just found an announcement for this this even at

Check this out.  10/21 - 10/27  There will be me over 40 talks including 21 teachers as well as HHtDL.

It's free  and should be an interesting series.

TBH, I don't know if I'll attend or not.  I'm prepping for a big car and craft show.

Be forewarned. This is said too be free, which I take for "no charge".  I suspect there will be occaisional pitches for contribution for dana.  The last time I responded to something from HH, i started getting seasonal fund-raising material.  Back then it was a brochure describing what they were trying to raise money for.  These included a package 5 strung prayer flags, which were actually rather nice.  I have a couple sets strung on the monitors in my office. They stopped contacting me after a few years. I don't know about you, but  from involvement in my chosen political caucus, as well as NPOs, I don't mind being approached for fund-raising.  The trick is knowing how to say "No".  The point is, in the near term, it won't be "free".  They will like something in return, but they won't, or at least shouldn't, make it a hard sell.
