Many in Hawaii may want to see the Dalai Lama at his public events this weekend.

But his only event for the general public is already sold out. (It’s on Sunday.) There were still tickets for his Saturday talk to students available Thursday afternoon. (To learn more, click here.)

No reason to feel you won’t be able to experience the visit, though.

You can count on Civil Beat to be on the scene from the Dalai Lama’s arrival to his departure.

We’ll be live blogging from Friday afternoon through Monday, whenever the Dalai Lama is out and about in Honolulu.

We’ll also carry the video live stream of the Dalai Lama’s events. You’ll also find slideshows from our photographers who did the same for the APEC conference.

To learn more about the visit, check out our topic page on it.
