His Holiness The Dalai Lama in Australia




Friday 17th June - 1.30pm to 3.30pm
Riverstage, Brisbane Botanic Gardens



Nobel Laureate His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet, one of the world’s most revered spiritual leaders, will make an historic visit to Brisbane and engage with the people from South East Queensland in this special Conversation for those impacted directly and indirectly by the Queensland floods.

During this Public Conversation, the main public event for Queensland, His Holiness will speak about the human capacity to attain happiness despite circumstance and adversity.

Dalai Lama in Australia is an organisation with no practical resources (tradesman skills, products, etc) to be able to offer the relief effort in Queensland but what we have been able to organise, in association with Brisbane City Council who have kindly offered the Riverstage in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens for free and the 1400 supporters who will purchase tickets at $50 each, is make available over 2000 Free seated tickets to various councils around Queensland for distribution to those they feel would benefit greatly from hearing His Holiness speak and also to make available 6000 Free General Admission tickets for the public.

His Holiness has expressed a wish to speak with as many people as possible and in particular spend time with the flood victims, helping them and the Queensland public deal with the grief that follows such a disaster.
During the Conversation the Dalai Lama will not only share with us his personal insights and knowledge on this complex subject but you too will have the opportunity to ask His Holiness a question also.


Once you have booked your ticket, you will have the opportunity to submit a question for His Holiness on Overcoming Loss. All questions will be reviewed and categorized with some lucky attendees to the Conversation being chosen to ask their question, on behalf of the audience, directly to His Holiness. What a wonderful opportunity.

Please consider the following guidelines when submitting questions for consideration:
Please limit your question to no more than 120 characters and please remember that the theme of the Brisbane Public Conversation is on Happiness, Compassion and Overcoming Loss -- although political questions will not be dismissed out of hand, it would be helpful to focus on these themes.

If you have purchased a ticket for the Brisbane Public Conversation and are not able to submit your question online, you can email the question to info@dalailamainaustralia.org
