has deep affinities with the city of Vancouver, British Columbia. The local newspaper, the Vancouver Sun, invited him to serve as Guest Editor for a special edition of the paper on Saturday, Sept. 26th, and he accepted. Every section of the paper shows the influence of the Buddha's teachings; the main theme is "Educating the Heart."
His Holiness was here to attend a Peace Summit, that brought together Nobel Laureates and spiritual luminaries in conversation.
The Vancouver Sun will be donating 10 cents for every special edition sold over the weekend to the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, a non-political, non-religious, Vancouver-based charitable organization focused on fostering personal and global peace.
