Pillars Of Peace Hawaii: His Holiness The Dalai Lama Launches Peace Initiative

His Holiness the Dalai Lama's visit to Hawai'i in April 2012 marked the launch of Hawai'i Community Foundation's new initiative, "Pillars of Peace Hawai'i: Building Peace on a Foundation of Aloha." The visit touched thousands of people and brought an important message of peace and compassion to Hawai'i and beyond.
