Denver, CO — His Holiness the Dalai Lama will give a major public talk in Denver on Sunday afternoon, September 17, 2006 at Pepsi Center before an expected audience of 12,000 people. Entitled, “The Science of a Compassionate Life,” the talk is sponsored by the Mind and Life Institute and co-sponsored by Naropa University Extended Studies, both based in Boulder. Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper will introduce the Dalai Lama.

The Dalai Lama’s visit to Denver is a rare event. The last time he spoke in Denver was nine years ago. People are expected to come from all over the country to attend this special talk. The event will begin at 2:30 p.m. Pepsi Center is located at 1000 Chopper Circle in Denver's Central Platte Valley.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the Dalai Lama’s public talk at the Pepsi Center,” said Adam Engle, chairman and co-founder of the Mind and Life Institute. “It has been nine years since his last visit here, and in that period, interest in the Dalai Lama’s message and the way to lead a compassionate life has blossomed. There is already a huge amount of excitement around this visit. The public talk at Pepsi Center will allow a large number of people to hear the Dalai Lama for the first time.”

Other Events with the Dalai Lama: In addition to the talk at Pepsi Center, while in Colorado, the Dalai Lama will be the keynote speaker for PeaceJam’s 10th Anniversary conference with Nobel Laureates, September 15-16 at the University of Denver (www.peacejam.org). He will also officiate at a Buddhist ceremony at the Shambhala Mountain Center in Red Feather Lakes, Colorado (www.shambhalamountain.org) on Sunday morning, September 17.

Mind and Life Institute: The Dalai Lama is a co-founder and honorary chairman of the Mind and Life Institute. Established in 1987 in Boulder, Colorado, the Mind and Life Institute is dedicated to fostering dialogue and research between modern science and the great living contemplative traditions, especially Buddhism. It builds on a deep commitment to the power and value of both of these ways of advancing knowledge and their potential to alleviate suffering. The Mind and Life Institute has sponsored thirteen major conferences bringing together neuroscientists, psychologists, the Dalai Lama, Buddhist meditation masters, and western contemplative leaders. In the last few years, Mind and Life has hosted two conferences in the United States—at MIT in Boston and in Washington, D.C. For complete information, please visit www.mindandlife.org.

An Uncomfortable Truth

Yesterday I saw the Al Gore movie An Uncomfortable Truth.
It was quite disturbing and the science was absolutely
undisputed truth! Every high school and college should
be showing this movie and every voter needs to be
responsible to make a difference for the future seven
generations. If you haven't seen it, this one is a must see.

Once it is out on DVD purchase it and show it to all your
friends and then donate it to your local library.

I have also recently found a great website which you
should all check out http://yourquestion.org - it is a site
designed to solve the world problems by asking the right
questions. I highly recommend this one. We all need to
join together and find some solutions. I invite your comments.
What is your reaction to this website? What would you like
to change about the world?

Turn your apathy into activity or as the old Native American
prayer goes "When you pray, move your feet!"

Check out Dropping Knowledge.org to reflect on the topics of greatest concern to the global public.
