H.H Dalai Lama in the Netherlands
This year will mark the seventh visit of His Holiness to the Netherlands.
On May 11, there are two events open to the public: a Buddhist teaching and a lecture.
The Buddhist teaching is titled "The Three Principle Aspects of the Path" and consists of a complete overview of the most significant points on the path to enlightenment: the detemination to achieve freedom, altruistic intention and the emptiness of inherent existence.
Following the teaching will be a public lecture [SOLD OUT] titled "Well-being, Wisdom and Compassion: a Secular Approach" which will discuss the development of compassion and ethical notions in an increasingly secular world.
