EMORY TIBET Symbosium on Bridging Buddhism and Science at Drepung Losel Ling Monastery Prayer Hall (18th December to 20th December'2017) Despite his advanced age and hardship, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, for all 3 mornings, has been so kind to walk to the Symposium Venue to attend the Symposium blessing one and all on his way.
 He greeted well-wishers along the way, as well as offering comfort to beggars who also vied for his attention. In the spacious Loseling assembly hall approximately 3000 monks, 260 nuns—including the 20 new Geshe-mas—local Tibetan school-children, and people from abroad were gathered to attend the first international Emory Tibet Symposium.

Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi introduced the occasion explaining that the Symposium is a partial fulfilment of His Holiness’s vision for dialogue between Buddhism and science. It was, he said, the natural development of relations that have grown up between Emory University, the Library of Tibetan Works & Archives and monks and nuns, mostly in South India. He announced that the present meeting happens to coincide with the 600th anniversary of Drepung Monastery, one of Tibet’s great seats of learning.
