Today His Holiness engaged in site-seeing activities in Seattle and granted audiences at Nalanda West. In the morning, His Holiness and his party were treated to a guided tour of the Museum of Flight, home of the original manufacturing facility of the Boeing Company, where His Holiness saw displays related to past lunar missions and received the latest news about data coming in from missions to Mars. In the afternoon, His Holiness was taken on a boat tour of Lake Union and Lake Washington, the two main lakes adjacent to Seattle.
In the afternoon, His Holiness granted a blessing and teaching audience to members of Nalandabodhi, the students of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, principal organizer of Karmapa in America ’08. In the evening, His Holiness gave two well-attended audiences for members of the Tibetan community hosted by the local Tibetan Association.
