"Nonviolence is more powerful than violence," says Robert Thurman, co-founder of Tibet House New York. He organized a conference entitled "Peacemaking: The Power of Nonviolence" to bring together many powerful and creative activists and meditation teachers, sharing their experience and insight on ending violence of all kinds. In this first day of the conference, we also hear H.H. the Dalai Lama of Tibet, Alice Walker, Angeles Arrien, Gay Luce and Edward James Olmos, speaking of the causes and deeper cures of violent behavior. "There's no reason for hopelessness or despair," says Thurman. "We can solve these problems. We can move into another century that can be more peaceful and happy than the last century--the last twenty, maybe." (hosted by Michael Toms)

The Dalai Lama: Recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the thirteenth Dalai Lama, Tensin Gyatso was brought to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, and, and enthroned two years later as the fourteenth Dlai Lama.

Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, His Holiness is today universally acknowledged as one of the world's preeminent spiritual leaders.
