Maitripa College, the first and only Tibetan Buddhist college in the Pacific Northwest, was the honored host for His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, who spoke at a 3-day public event in Portland for The Dalai Lama Environmental Summit. The Environmental Summit included enlightening teachings and conversations with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and distinguished leaders of the Pacific Northwest environmental, scientific, policy and faith communities.
“The Book of Tree” film crew consisting of director, Rob Whitehair, and producer, Pam Voth, was allowed access to film and photograph the event.
On the final day of the summit we filmed an interview with Dr. David Suzuki who spoke passionately about the need to place a high value on saving the environment. Please enjoy these select images from the summit.
