His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, will make his first trip to San Diego April 18 and 19 for public events at three host universities — San Diego State University, UC San Diego and University of San Diego. The Compassion Without Borders symposium will include three major public events:

“This will be a historic event for San Diego,” said event chair The Venerable Lama Tenzin Dhonden. “This event will bring together people of different faiths, secularists and non-secularists, scientists, scholars and artists to celebrate our shared values.” USD will award His Holiness the University of San Diego Medal of Peace.

Tickets for all events will go on sale Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 10 a.m. Each venue will sell tickets to their events separately.
