At home in Dharamsala with the Dalai Lama

Vice President and Secretary of the University Rosemary Magee and Geshe Lhakdor, director of the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, recently signed an agreement in recognition of the ongoing productive collaboration of the Emory-Tibet Partnership, including the newly named Robert A. Paul Emory-Tibet Science Initiative. The signing ceremony, which took place June 11 in Dharamsala, India, was witnessed by His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, who recently announced his second gift of $50,000 to the ETSI in support of a comprehensive and sustainable science education program for Tibetan monks and nuns. The Dalai Lama, who joined Emory’s faculty as Presidential Distinguished Professor in 2007, will return for a visit to Emory this October.
