According to a joint press release sent out by trip organizers last night, the Dalai Lama is scheduled to visit the Garden of 1,000 Buddhas in Arlee. A Friday press conference with Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, the spiritual head of Ewam International and the founder of the Garden of 1,000 Buddhas, will reveal more details.

From the release:


Meet Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche in person, speaking about the Garden of 1,000 Buddhas in Arlee, and announcing the confirmed visit by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Montana.

You’ve heard that the Dalai Lama is coming to Montana? Now you can say/print/broadcast, "It’s true!" His Holiness the Dalai Lama is coming at the invitation of Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche founder of the Garden of 1,000 Buddhas in Arlee, Montana.

...

Everyone knows who the Dalai Lama is, but for the record, he is the 14th Dalai Lama, and the first to travel extensively outside of Tibet. Born Tenzin Gyatso, in 1935, recognized as the next Dalai Lama at an early age, he is both the head of state and the spiritual leader of the Tibetan government in exile, seated in Dharamsala, India, where he has lived since having to flee his homeland in 1959. He won the Nobel Peace prize in 1989, and is the author of dozens of books.

On Friday, Rinpoche will give a brief talk about the garden, the Dalai Lama’s visit, and how both will impact this region, as well as how all are welcome to take part.
