His Holiness The Dalai Lama in Edinburgh

His Holiness The Dalai Lama gave a public talk on the theme “Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World” at the Usher Hall earlier on today, as the highlight of a five month series of talks marking the 20th anniversary of The Edinburgh Lectures.

Our photographer was on hand to get these super shots of the Dalai Lama and the crowds who came to greet him, which, along with last week’s photographs of the Olympic Torch we’ll shortly be adding to Capital Collections, our online image gallery.

Capital Collections gives a unique view of the history of Edinburgh and its people, and is made up of pictures from the collections of Edinburgh’s Libraries and Museums and Galleries. We’re constantly adding to it and would urge you to take some time to explore this remarkable resource for yourself.
