A Man of Compassion and Wisdom
The Dalai Lama's Journey

Dalai Lama in Australia is delighted to be staging and touring a photo Exhibition which profiles the life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The photographic biography follows his journey from childhood and his early years in Tibet, through to his exile and arrival in India, and the 51 years since.

We wish to make this Exhibition as widely available as possible to people across Australia, bringing it to both metropolitan and regional centres, in the months leading up to His Holiness visit to Australia in June 2011.

The grand opening of the Exhibition will be in Bathurst, NSW on the 27th November with the Exhibition then moving on to Byron Bay for the 14-16th January 2011. Other towns in the planning are Mudgee, Tamworth, Sunshine Coast, Hervey Bay, as well as our major capital cities, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney.

The Exhibition will be shown in Libraries, Town Halls, Community Centres, Galleries, Universities, Museums and during Festivals, offering people the opportunity to get to know the Dalai Lama better, to introduce the key milestones of his life, his commitments, core values and achievements - to celebrate his life in recognition of his priceless example to us all and of our human potential.

If you would like this wonderful exhibition to come to your town or city and know of a suitable public space to display the photographs, please contact our curator at

Remember to visit our website often to check when and where the Exhibition will be in a location close to you.


Sunrise / Sunset

Running alongside of the photo Exhibition, Dalai Lama in Australia are very pleased to preview special screenings of the documentary film Sunrise/Sunset. The daily life of the His Holiness is brought home with remarkable intimacy in this insightful film.

Granted total access to His Holiness for 24 hours, this is a day in the life of the Dalai Lama at his residence in Dharamsala, India. From his early morning prayers at three in the morning to his bedtime at dusk, you are granted a rare glimpse into his daily routine.

The exiled spiritual leader of the Tibetan people has said of himself: "Sometimes the people call me a living Buddha or a God King, but I always say, this is nonsense. I am a simple Buddhist monk. Through this film you will realize, I am a normal human being, nothing special. Just a normal Buddhist monk."

Starting with his morning fitness routine and continuing on through the private audiences, press conferences, and blessings he imparts every day, it is a comprehensive and compassionate document of his everyday habits. As the sun begins to set, and with his duties completed, the Dalai Lama sits down with the filmmakers for a wide ranging interview covering topics related to the essence of the Universe, the gap between rich and poor, and the role an individual has to play in religion and contemporary society.

This is your chance to see the Dalai Lama as you've never seen him before ... at home!

Sunrise/Sunset is Directed by Vitali Manski, produced by Alive Mind Films and distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Dalai Lama in Australia Limited.
