THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT! WE ARE UNLIKELY TO BE ABLE TO SEAT PEOPLE FROM THE WAIT-LIST AT THIS TIME. THANK YOU!

Come join world-renowned scholar, teacher, and author, Robert Thurman, for a rare Los Angeles appearance at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. The evening will feature teachings, guided mediation and conversation with the man The New York Times called "the leading American expert on Tibetan Buddhism."

Robert Thurman
Author of more than 20 books and the first American ordained as a Tibetan monk by his friend of more than 40 years, the Dalai Lama, Thurman is Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University, where his colloquial and humorous way of imparting the Buddha's teachings has made him one of the most popular professors. He is President of Tibet House US, a non-profit dedicated to preserving and promoting Tibetan civilization, and regularly lectures around the world.

Thurman is a passionate advocate for the truth regarding the current Tibet-China situation. His commitment to finding a win-win solution for Tibet and China inspired him to write his latest book, Why the Dalai Lama Matters: His Act of Truth as the Solution for China, Tibet and the World, published in June 2008.

Musician Joey Lugassy and his band will perform before the start of the program, beginning at 7:00pm. Lugassy, one of LA's most esteemed spiritual musicians, has sung for Thich Nhat Hanh, written a song for Amnesty International, and received two Emmy nominations for best song in a drama series.
