The visit touched thousands of people and brought an important message of peace and compassion to Hawai’i and beyond.


From private discussions with native Hawaiian leaders, to public talks geared to students and the wider community, the Dalai Lama shared his insights and inspired us to consider our own daily practices of peace and aloha.
