The Dalai Lama at Aspen: A Celebration of Tibetan Culture

The Aspen Institute and co-chairs Margot Pritzker and Richard Blum, in collaboration with the Conservancy for Tibetan Art and Culture, are proud to present a substantive symposium that embraces Tibetan and Himalayan art, culture, science, medicine, spiritual practice and history. The three-day program—featuring His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the keynote speaker—brought together an extraordinary number of eminent scholars, teachers, practitioners and tradition-bearers from around the globe to shed light on the rich historical and philosophical significance of Tibet and its impact on global issues today. Attendees partook in panel discussions, presentations and breakout sessions. Interactive demonstrations of ancient Tibetan and Himalayan arts provided opportunities for tradition-bearers and program participants to meet in an intimate environment.
