Twenty years ago, the Dalai Lama received the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in leading Tibet and China towards a peaceful resolution. He's celebrating the anniversary of his achievement in Australia next month.

From the 1st  - 10th December, the Dalai Lama will be giving public talks in Sydney, Hobart and Melbourne, spreading his message of compassion, love and peace. To buy tickets, visit www.dalailamainaustralia.org.

At each event, attendees will be offered blessed packets of seeds specific to each state. Participants in Sydney will receive native grass seeds, in Hobart they will receive bottlebrush seeds and in Melbourne it will be wattle seeds.

The Dalai Lama in Australia organisation is running a promotion with the Diggers Club offering 50 lucky winners a commemorative fruit tree to plant in their local community. Please see your seed packet for more information or go to www.diggers.com.au.
