Madison, WI, July 18 - His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama was warmly greeted at the Madison airport by a number of dignitaries including Wisconsin State Senate President Fred Risser, Director and Abbot of Deer Park Buddhist Center Geshe Llundup Sopa, NATA Coordinator Tashi Namgyal, and President of the Wisconsin Tibetan Association, Lobsang Tenzin,

tenshug (Long Life Prayer Offering) for him. Saturday will see him consecrating the new Deer Park Buddhist Center temple in the morning and in the afternoon he will be giving a public talk at the Alliant Energy Center. (Side by side on the Coliseum’s grounds, the Dane County Junior Fair is being held with farm animals raised by youth, an amusement park, carnival food and helicopter rides.)

Stepping out of the car with a smile, His Holiness slowly walked the long driveway, greeting people, stopping to talk in Tibetan with some, shaking hands, all the while smiling. At the top of the driveway, he was greeted by dancers in snow lion costumes, conch shells sounding, singers singing people. The last the audience could see of His Holiness, he was under a golden umbrella being greeted by members of the monastery.
