http-//www.dalailamainaustralia.org/home.aspx Australians are extremely fortunate to have His Holiness the Dalai Lama visit in December 2009 for a series of public talks entitled Our Future- Who is responsible? as well as a two-day Teaching Event in Sydney, Awakening The Mind. Developing a kind heart and awakening the mind is not just a sentimental or religious goal. It is for everyone, irrespective of race, religion or political affiliation. It is for anybody who considers themselves a member of the human family. As Archbishop Desmond Tutu recently has stated, His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not simply a holy man. He is recognized throughout the world as one of our few true moral authorities. He is a teacher who has shown us all how to live our lives with compassion, non violence and love.
