A Visit With His Holiness The Dalai Lama

On October 19, 1979, the eve of his departure back to India following a historic 49-day visit to the United States, The Fourteenth Dalai Lama met in conversation with Werner Erhard in Boston. The presentation of The Werner Erhard Foundation before 300 guests grew out of Werner Erhard's initial meeting with the His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the acknowledged "Pontiff of Buddhism," three years earlier. They first met in Dharmsala, India, where His Holiness has resided since 1959, when the Chinese occupied his Tibetan homeland.
