Dalai Lama marks 80th birthday with compassion-themed Anaheim summit

Three-day jubilee commemorating the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday kicks off Sunday with the Nobel Peace Prize winner lecturing on creativity and compassion before a sold-out crowd at Anaheim’s Honda Center.

The Dalai Lama’s public talk, which will be streamed online, will close out the Global Compassion Summit’s first day, packed with musical performances and well-wishes from a far-flung group of celebrities and global luminaries.
