His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will make a historic fourth visit to the University of California, Santa Barbara, in April 2009 for two public lectures.
From 9:30-11:30 a.m., he will lecture on "The Nature of Mind," and from 2-4 p.m. he will speak on "Ethics for Our Time." Both events are open to the public.
Important Information for Current Dalai Lama Event Ticket Holders
Doors open two hours prior to each scheduled event. Please arrive 1 1/2 to 2 hours before the event is scheduled to begin to give yourself enough time to go through security and assume your seat. There will be no late seating for this event. If you exit the building during a given session, you will not be allowed to re-enter during that session.
UCSB campus parking will be free until 5 pm on Friday, April 24. However, we recommend that all patrons living near campus either walk or bike to the event to avoid traffic congestion on campus. Parking officials and signs will be present at all campus entrances to direct ticket holders to available parking in the lots nearest the UCSB Events Center.

Because the security of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the highest priority, attendees will undergo a security screening at the UCSB Events Center through a metal detector.

• Cameras and cell phone cameras – photography is strictly prohibited. We reserve the right to confiscate devices from anyone found using their camera/cell phone.
In the period between the morning and afternoon lectures, we recommend that ticket buyers purchase lunch nearby the Events Center so as to allow enough time to re-enter the security screening line. Signs will be posted directing patrons to concessions within walking distance of the Events Center to areas near the Student Resource Building, the Student Health Services Lawn, the University Center and Isla Vista. We recommend that all patrons leave their vehicle parked in its current location during the lunch period.
