Each year, His Holiness the Dalai Lama travels the world offering teachings and public talks to individuals from many different faiths and backgrounds. While His Holiness will also often bestow empowerments and initiations to coincide with these teachings, he continues to stress the importance of one attending teachings in order to provide practitioners with a better understanding of Buddhist philosophy.

His Holiness will impart three days of teachings on Nagarjuna’s Commentary on Bodhicitta, and A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, by Shantideva.
On May 23rd, His Holiness the Dalai Lama will give a public talk entitled Awakening the Heart of Selflessness. His Holiness will discuss the process of realizing true selflessness and how this realization awakens a genuine caring for others.

The public talk will conclude with a short question and answer session.
Both events will take place at Radio City Music Hall.
