To celebrate the good humanness, precious life and universal teachings of the 14th Dalai Lama, and to promote his worldwide efforts for peace.
To bring people together, catalyze dialogue, find connection and generate harmony. To remind us all of our own inherent goodness and ability to change the world around us.
The Buddha Prince is first and foremost a celebration, of everything that the Dalai Lama stands for, including his wonderful love of laughter.
The Buddha Prince helps to inform the general public about the Dalai Lama's history and worldview.
