He is an Ocean of Wisdom and we are so very fortunate that he has once again made the commitment to travel all the way to Australia and share his inexhaustible compassion and wisdom with us. As His Holiness will be 80 on the 6thJuly 2015, the Ocean of Wisdomvisit will see His Holiness visit only three cities in this great land of Australia – Sydney, Brisbane & Perth - lessening the impact on him and the program of events he is offering.
