London based photographer Clive Arrowsmith was in NYC attending The Dalai Lama's Teachings. The Tibet Center, founded by Khyongla Rato Rinpoche (in Clive's portrait above), hosted His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Teachings in NYC in partnership with Richard Gere's organization, Healing the Divide.

Some excellent posts on Tricycle Magazine's blog describe each days Dalai Lama Talks at Radio City Music Hall this past week. Tricycle: Day 1 & 2 and Tricycle: Day 3. Also on the Tricycle blog is a not to be missed Video Interview with Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman


Sitting in front of Jessica Hines and I at HH The Dalai Lama's Public Talk at Radio City Music Hall was American Composer Marvin Hamlisch and sitting behind us– Jon Bon Jovi!

That photograph of the Dalai Lama is beautiful - conveying the impression of seeing with closed eyes.
