His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama does not charge a speaking engagement fee and no aspect of His Holiness' visit is being used to profit financially.

Dalai Lama in Australia is a Not-for-Profit organisation run principally by volunteers. Income generated through events during the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama are used to cover the costs of organising the events and to run the organisation until the next visit. 

After discussion with the representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama (Tibet Information Office) any income in excess of these requirements is distributed according to their judgement.
