Dalai Lama Arrives in D.C. for Congressional Gold Medal- 16.10.2007

Here’s some video of the Dalai Lama arriving in Washington today from YouTube. Tibet’s spiritual leader will receive a Congressional Gold Medal tomorrow at the U.S. Capitol. The medal, which accompanies a resolution passed last year that recognizes him as „a leading figure of moral and religious authority,“ will be presented during a ceremony attended by Preident Bush, representing the first time a sitting U.S. president has met the Dalai Lama in public.

If you’d like to watch the ceremony, head down to the West Lawn tomorrow, where a large screen will simulcast the proceedings in the Rotunda, beginning at 1 p.m. There will also be a Tibetan cultural program on from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m, and after the ceremony, at approximately 2:30 p.m., the Dalai Lama will deliver a speech on the West Lawn to the general public. All the details you could possibly want are at this website.
