His Holiness the Dalai Lama Receives the 2015 Liberty Medal

Although His Holiness was unable to attend the ceremony in Philadelphia due to health considerations, Richard Gere, Dr. Thubten Jinpa, and representatives from the Office of Tibet received the prestigious Liberty Medal on his behalf.  Richard Gere gave a wonderful tribute to His Holiness and managed to include quotes from both Chandragomin and Shantideva. His Holiness donated the $100,000 to support the work of the Mind and Life Institute.
