indriya: For Tibetan Buddhists & other interested Buddhistly types...
The Dalai Lama is visiting Oz next year. His tour details can be found on the following website:http://www.dalailama.org.au/The Dalai Lama 2007 Australia Tour will be eleven days of events and opportunities to hear and see one of the most recognisable people in the world today, as well as the spiritual and political head of the Tibetan people.
Many people around the world, many of them Buddhist, and even more of them not, are fascinated by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. Both groups will be well catered for in the tour itinerary, along with the media and commercial leaders.
Sadly the tour doesn't include Brisbane... a good excuse for a trip, though, non?
\o/ETA: oops, HH is coming to Brisvegas!

mindfulness: He is coming to Brisbane :-)
I read that site and the tour details page says as of December 06 he will spend two days in Brisbane (13-14 June), one for a civic reception and launch of Kindness Week (aw, how cool) and a free public talk. Free. Hurrah. Donating will be fun.
So, no need to travel, although some of the conferences and symposiums he's visiting in other cities sound awesome, but man, Kindness Week just sounds very cool to me although I can't really find any information on it.
Thanks for posting the link.

Thanks for the head's up :D Two of his tour days in Melbourne is a workday, so I hope it won't be anywhere that's out of the beaten track.
