As you may know, there were some problems with His Holiness the Dalai Lama joining me in Cape Town for my birthday... but I am so happy that he will be with us tomorrow after all, delivering his peace lecture via a video hangout. You can watch the lecture live right here, so drop by tomorrow morning at 10am. We hope that you will all be able to make it! God bless you.
