The Dalai Lama is visiting Oz next year. His tour details can be found on the following website:
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?
ETA: oops, HH is coming to Brisvegas!
