The Hawai’i Community Foundation has started an organization called the Pillars of Peace and it’s goal is to bring world leaders to Hawaii in the future for public talks about things that are going on in the world.
Ebay Founder Pierre Omidyar and his personal ties to His Holiness the Dalai Lama made it possible for the Dalai Lama to make his first visit to Hawaii since he was last here in Maui a few years back.
Here are some of the pictures that were released from his visit:
His Holiness thanks a group of three and four-year-olds from Aha Punana Leo O Honolulu School. The Children performed “Hele Au,” a song about their school sung in the Hawaiian Language, to welcome His Holiness to the Bishop Museum
Virginia Hinshaw, Chancellor of University of Hawaii at Manoa and Robert M. Witt, Executive Director of Hawaii Association of Independent Schools welcomes His Holiness to the Stan Sheriff Center for his talk to students, “Educating the Heart”.
