In 2007, His Holiness the Dalai Lama appeared to a sold-out crowd at Radio City Music Hall to discuss the ways that individuals can best cultivate virtuous qualities within themselves to bring about peace and prosperity in today's world. National Geographic filmed this public talk imbued with the basic tenets of Buddhism and with an introduction by Richard Gere. In his address, His Holiness the Dalai Lama further expands upon his desire to promote religious harmony and tolerance among all the countries and peoples of the world. The film includes a question and answer session with candid responses from His Holiness on such topics as achieving inner peace in the chaotic environs of New York City, the difficulty of converting the practice of patience from a theoretical teaching to an everyday reality and the challenges of remaining hopeful in a violent world.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama: Peace and Prosperity offers insight for those seeking peace and inner harmony in their everyday lives and is a unique record of the message of this important spiritual leader.
