The destiny of a people lies in the heart of a boy...

The Tibetans refer to the Dalai Lama as 'Kundun', which means 'The Presence'. He was forced to escape from his native home, Tibet, when communist China invaded and enforced an oppressive regime upon the peaceful nation of Tibet. The Dalai Lama escaped to India in 1959 and has been living in exile in Dharamsala ever since.

This is an indoor presentation! Please bring your own chairs for a comfortable viewing experience.

Admission is FREE but we ask that you please bring a food bank donation.
