When those who spend their lives practicing and teaching ways to inner peace come together with those who devote their lives to political peace and justice, the abstract concept of world peace suddenly begins to crystallize into specific attitudes and actions within the reach of any of us. This is what happened on the third and final day of the "Peacemaking: The Power of Nonviolence" conference. Hear how you can help people in repressed nations; how schools can teach nonviolent behavior; and how the homeless can be effectively helped. In the words of Linda Lantieri, "Every single person has a role to play. None of us is off the hook.... It ís for us to figure out how to be part of that solution, of waging peace in our schools, our homes, our communities." This program also features Nobel Peace Prize-winners the Dalai Lama of Tibet and Jose Ramos-Horta of East Timor, as well as Robert Thurman and Roshi Bernard Gassman. (hosted by Michael Toms)


H.H. 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. As Tibet's leader-in-exile, he has worked tirelessly not only on behalf of the Tibetan people but as a voice for human rights worldwide. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, His Holiness is today universally acknowledged as one of the world's preeminent spiritual leaders.
