Two events with ties to Augsburg College were featured in The Lutheran magazine’s April 2014 edition. The ELCA publication featured photos of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama celebrating Losar, the Tibetan New Year, in Augsburg’s Si Melby gymnasium on March 2. Also pictured was His Holiness, a day earlier, blessing Tenzin Yeshi Paichang ’16 as part of a keynote presentation at the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Forum.
When he was two years old, Augsburg student Tenzin Yeshi Paichang ’16 was cast as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Martin Scorcese’s movie “Kundun.” This past weekend, Paichang added a new role to his resume — that of His Holiness’s student attache at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum. Paichang’s experiences were featured by the Pioneer Press in, “Dalai Lama’s visit will be third juncture for Augsburg student” and by WCCO television in the story, “Dalai Lama Visits Minneapolis For Nobel Peace Prize Forum, Tibetan New Year.”
