    Hello!
    I was wondering if there is a list of people who are looking to sell their tickets due to not being able to attend the event? I would really like to participate in the March 1 forum, but the tickets are sold out. Thanks in advanced for your assistance!

    • Ashley Long says:

      Hi Sarah,

      Unfortunately, no, we do not have a list of individuals selling tickets for the March 1st NPPF event.

      Thank you!

    I am very surprised at the “fee” to see the Dalai Lama. This event should be free or much less pricey, to make it available to all. Many Buddhist events are free.

  7. Sam says:

    Dalai Lama, please “promote religious harmony” and lift the ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden.
