The half-day ticketed public lecture will take place from 2 – 4 p.m. Sunday, July 13, in Stabler Arena. His Holiness will give a public talk on “Generating a Good Heart.”

Lehigh University has announced an exclusive pre-sale for faculty, staff, students and alumni for the Dalai Lama public lecture.

His visit will also include five-and-a-half days of teaching from Thursday, July 10 thru Tuesday, July 15. The spiritual leader of Tibet, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, will teach on Tsong-kha-pa’s Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment: The Lamrim Chenmo.
