My friend Jim Luce co-hosts the Dalai Lama’s 84th birthday celebration here in New York in July. This also marks the 60th anniversary of His Holiness’s escape from Chinese communist rule in Tibet.

“In 1959 — sixty years ago — His Holiness the Dalai Lama crossed the snow-covered Himalayan Mountains from Tibet into India to escape Chinese Communist persecution,” states Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura-Hillyer, founder of Gaia Holistic Foundation.
“No one really knew of Tibet or His Holiness until then. This year, we celebrate his escape, his birthday – and his legacy of building world peace through harmony on the evening of July 9 at J.W. Marriott Essex House here in New York City,” she adds.
“If you want to attend this important event, you had better get tickets now,” states Jim Luce, co-host of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s 84th birthday interfaith celebration. “This is the fifth year we have celebrated His message of peace and compassion on Central Park South, and never has there been more interest!,”
