The Dalai Lama is visiting Australia next week. His guest lecture at the University of Sydney was the subject of some controversy.

I spoke to Kyinzom Dhongdue from the Australia Tibet CouncilΒ on today’s Daily on 2SER.Β I started off by asking about who the Dalai Lama actually is and why this visit is significant.

I grew up with images and stories of Tibet, mainly because my mother worked with many Tibetan people in northern India as a young doctor. I always knew it as an exotic place where the people were peaceful and continually suffering. This is still the case, and I am interested to see if anything constructive comes out of this upcoming visit.
