WelcomeThe project to invite His Holiness the Dalai Lama for a series of events in Spokane has generated strong endorsements from diverse sectors of the region. The enthusiasm is not just for the Nobel Laureate himself, but for the values he embraces and for the possibility of giving compassion a visible place in the region's civic affairs. Rotary 21 and Sravasti Abbey, co-sponsors of the invitation, recently learned that His Holiness is unable to accept the invitation at this time. (Join the Facebook Fan page to build public support if you can though!) But the proposed two-year plan to explore compassionate action has developed a momentum of its own. An organization and structure are now forming under the title of Friends of Compassion. Implementation of the ideas can have a positive effect on the community and could open the door for His Holiness to accept an invitation in the future.
