Wisdom’s Goldenrod has a special an unique relationship with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Two members (Sid Piburn and Charlene Temple) met with His Holiness in Dharamsala India in October 1978. He was invited to Wisdom’s Goldenrod and the next year, during his first trip to the United States he stayed at the Center, gave a lecture and dedicated our Library on October 10, 1979.
His Holiness visited us a second time in March of 1991. He spoke at the Center again–out in the tent due to big crowd–March 1991. He was in Ithaca to present a lecture at Cornell–in Barton Hall. “Overcoming Differences”.
The Wisdom’s Goldenrod community have been blessed with other private meetings: at the Monastery In Washington New Jersey, Toronto Canada, Buffalo New York, Middlebury College (Middlebury Vermont)
