His Holiness the Dalai Lama Honors Oceanographer Walter Munk

A special moment from the Global Compassion Summit, at the Compassionate Planet discussion on climate change, when His Holiness the Dalai Lama paused to honor his elder, renowned oceanographer Walter Munk. Our thanks to University of California, Irvine and Center for Living Peace for being such generous hosts!

If that doesn’t make you feel good inside, I don’t know what will!

  • A Special Present For His Holiness

Munk later presented His Holiness with a picture of a newly discovered aquatic species, which was named “Sirsoe dalailamai” after His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. Munk told the audience that the animal was named after His Holiness because during its lifetime, it gives back to the Earth more than it takes! Sounds a lot like His Holiness, doesn’t it?
