    Tenpa Dugdak's heartfelt collection of letters is a reminder of our purpose: to strive for the peace and compassion that His Holiness has devoted his life to with grace, optimism and an eternal smile. – Annette Dasey, Journalist

    AUSTRALIANS HAVE COME TOGETHER with a shared intention to honour His Holiness the Great 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet in a special anthology; Dear Dalai Lama: Letters from Australians, on the special occasion of his 80th birthday celebrated on 6 July worldwide.

    Handled with care, this edifying collectible features tributes that are profoundly intimate from Australian writers, artists, intellectuals, business leaders, philanthropists, senators, professionals and visionaries in their own right. The book succeeds in its motivation—true to the Nobel Laureate’s universal message of loving-kindness—to illuminate the friendships between Australians and His Holiness that date back further than his first visit to the country in 1982.

    As Emeritus Prof. Stuart Rees reminds us in his insightful Foreword, this initiative emerges “at a time when courage in public life is desperately needed.” A sobering appeal to our sense of humanity emerges beyond the salutations to an inspiring leader who is a global ambassador of non-violent hope. That is: to continue to bravely defend the Tibetans’ aspirations for true freedom on their long struggle, as this book strives to do.

    Featuring letters by:
    Dr. Bob Brown, Former Senator and leader of the Australian Greens
    Gabriel Lafitte, Tibet scholar and author
    The Hon. Julian Burnside AO QC, lawyer, writer, and human rights advocate
    Claire Scobie, Journalist and author
    Prof. The Hon. Gareth Evans AC QC, Former Foreign Minister of Australia
    and others

    With a Foreword by Emeritus Prof. Stuart Rees, Founder Sydney Peace Foundation
